New Employee Orientation

Welcome to the Department of Energy’s (DOE) orientation website.   As a newly appointed Federal and/or DOE employee, you are required to attend a one day New Employee Orientation (NEO) session on the first day that you report to work.  There are several mandatory forms that you will need to complete and bring with you.  This site enables you to access all the mandatory forms.  Please complete the forms and bring them with you to your NEO session. 

This site also provides information on benefits you may be eligible to receive.  If you are not certain as to whether you are eligible to receive a particular benefit, please contact your servicing Human Resources Specialist.  Their contact information can be found in your final offer letter.  You can access all election and beneficiary forms associated with each benefit.  You are not required to complete and submit these forms on your first day.  However, if you decide to make an election, please complete and bring the form(s) with you to your NEO session.    

The estimated completion time varies.   You do not have to finish the process all at one time.  You may take a break and then resume at a later time.   To get started, click the “Start Orientation” button below.  If you have difficulty completing a section or require additional information, please contact Lynn Proctor, Human Resources Specialist, on 202-586-9545 or via email:

Please feel free to browse the Department of Energy’s website to obtain additional information about your program office and/or other programs within the Department.
