    Facilities Welcome Day (FWD)

    A big hit with all new employees – all new-to-Facilities employees will be invited to attend Facilities Welcome Day (FWD). FWD was created as a result of employee requests to learn more about Facilities and has been part of the Facilities New Employee Orientation since 2016.

    WHAT: FWD is a day-long opportunity to meet Facilities leaders, learn about how Facilities supports the campus and take a guided bus tour to see campus.

    WHO: Employees who are newly hired, transfer from another area of UAB or who successfully transition from Temp Services into a benefited role will receive a personal invitation to attend during their first months as a Facilities employee.

    WHERE: Sessions are held at the Facilities Conference Center on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Employees should plan to attend the full day event (8:15 a.m.-3:15 p.m.) and will be paid their regular rate of pay.
