New Employee Orientation (NEO)  - Online Course
Research reveals that after selection, orientation is the single most critical step toward ensuring success of new hires. This session integrates new employees into the organization by welcoming them to the City and County of Denver and introducing public sector employment and service.  In addition, new employees receive detailed information concerning benefits, training, employee relations, performance appraisal, compensation, employee recognition, career development, promotion, transfer and other career management opportunities. New employees leave NEO knowing that they have every opportunity to make an impact on this community, internally and externally.

Ethics and Public Accountability - Instructor-Led Course
With ethics and integrity, every organization has to define its own criteria for success. Attend this session to learn about the City’s Code of Ethics outlines for employees regarding conflict of interest, acceptance of gifts and employment outside the City; conditions under which a citizen may file a complaint regarding perceived unethical behavior by a City employee; and resources available when an employee has a question regarding how to handle an ethical decision.
