New Employees

FWDOH&S's Kyle Boyett gives a speech during a Facilities Welcome Day program. The Facilities Welcome Day (FWD) is held on the second Tuesday of each month, depending on enrollment numbers. The program is designed to increase employees’ knowledge about the Facilities Division’s role at UAB, to encourage continuous improvement from employees and to give employees the resources they need to do their jobs. 

The program covers a wide range of topics, including the Facilities Division’s organization, the services the Division offers and the many departments within the Division. As part of the education process, several groups come through each session to educate employees on their role within the Division and projects they have completed. New employees are also taken on a tour of campus, complete with lunch. 

The yearly FWD schedule can be found below, along with informational materials. Questions about the program can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
