New Employee Orientation

The New Employee Orientation Program (NEOP) is designed to familiarize new employees with Prince George’s County Government and to provide information and resource materials that will answer questions about County employment and expectations. This program will also provide valuable insight into the responsibilities of public service and an awareness of the County’s goals, objectives, and structure.  New employees will become acquainted with the laws and policies governing County employees and the various benefits and services available.
