Did You Know?
With more than 33,000 faculty and staff, Duke is the largest private employer in the Triangle area. Visit the Quick Facts web site for additional facts and figures about Duke.
Duke is a large, multi-tiered and interconnected organization. At your New Staff Orientation session, facilitators will explain the organizational structure, provide an overview of all that is available to you at Duke, and describe your benefit options in detail. This is also a great opportunity to network with people you would not ordinarily meet.
There are separate New Staff Orientation sessions:
- Duke University staff: includes non-medical university employees
- Duke Health staff: includes those employed by Duke University Health System, the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing and the Private Diagnostic Clinic.
Patient-care staff must attend the event prior to beginning their work. Sessions are normally offered every two weeks. Your supervisor will register you for the appropriate New Staff Orientation session and share the confirmation details with you.
Benefits packets are distributed at the New Staff Orientation session. However, because of the 30-day enrollment window, we strongly recommend that you start reviewing your benefit options now on the Benefits web page. Be sure to note any questions you have so that you can ask at New Staff Orientation, or when you call the Human Resources Information Center. Remember to turn in your benefit enrollment forms within your first 30 days either at your New Staff Orientation session, or at the Duke Human Resources office at 705 Broad Street.
