Sometimes called Regional Orientation, or Hospital Wide Orientation (HWO), this portion of VCH Orientation prepares new employees for their role within the broader context of the organization. It used to take place in person, but has been delivered virtually since the pandemic. There are no longer site-specific weeks. It can be completed remotely (from home), and can be anywhere from 4 hours to 3 days depending on the new hire's role.
New hires should be registered by their unit manager, educator, or a delegated administrator for the sessions applicable to their site and role using the orientation registration system. After they're signed up, the new hire will receive an email with instructions, and all the links they'll need to get started, from firstname.lastname@example.org or VCHOrientation@vch.ca. These sessions are generally not for students, or for VCH employees who have been away from work for less than 18 months, unless they are changing roles.Register for virtual orientation
