Background Check Process
Skills Testing for Applicants
The UAF Office of Human Resources has testing tools available for testing applicants. Testing is simple to set up; just contact your HR Consultant. Your consultant can help you select the type of test you would like to use, send the test to applicants and forward the results to your department.
To get an idea of what your applicants can expect, you can request to have a test sent directly to you. You will have the chance to work your way through the test and get a feel for what you will be testing your applicants on. If you choose to do this, please do not complete the test, as our office will then be charged for it. Your consultant can answer any questions you may have about this process.

Please fill out the form below and submit it to our office. We will prep the file for review and call you to make an appointment as soon as it is ready.

OnBoarding Your New Employee!
New Employee Onboarding and Benefits Orientation Schedule Form -- Google Docs
All information on the New Employee Schedule Form for the Onboarding and Benefits Orientation (OBO) must be filled out by the department PPA and received no later than the Friday prior to the week of scheduled orientation date.
Click on the New Employee Schedule Form below to schedule new benefited employees for orientation. New employees will not be scheduled the week of orientation, unless special permission is granted by the HR Consultant.
OBOs are held the first and third Wednesday of each month. OBO is presented in the VCAS Conference Room in the Administrative Services Center Building and starts promptly at 8:30 am and last until approximately 12:00 pm. Those who are in remote locations and unable to attend in person are asked to call in to the session. Employees participating via distance will receive a conference call telephone number and pin a few days prior to orientation.
The Glacier Access link will connect you to the form to enter data for International Employees. The form is self-explanatory, but if you have questions, please don't hesitate to call our Personnel Tech staff.
Onboarding Checklist Template
Our Human Resources PPA collected the information on this checklist over the last few years. We use this checklist each time we welcome a new employee to our own office.
We do suggest that you customize the list to your specific office structure. This checklist is very extensive, but it is effective in providing a smooth onboarding process for your new employee!
