Effective onboarding of new staff (also known as induction) is a crucial part of making new employees feel welcomed and valued in their new role. It begins from the moment they accept their new position, and continues for up to three months after they have started in the job.

The RedCarpet onboarding system provides the new employee, and all staff and areas involved when they start work at Otago, with a set of tailored tasks to complete.

The tasks are delivered through an online portal and need to be completed by specific dates. The portal also contains information and videos relevant to the employee's new role:
If you are an existing staff member needing to log in to RedCarpet, you will need to click on the "Click here to log in using your network id" link and use your University credentials to log in, rather than entering your credentials on the main SilkRoad RedCarpet login page.
If you need help logging in or using RedCarpet, contact your HR Administrator:
