Welcome to Horry-Georgetown Technical College!

We are honored that you have decided to join our staff and HGTC family. Our college is a great place to work, and we strive to create a workplace environment that values inclusion, growth, and service excellence. The Office of Human Resources provides a comprehensive onboarding program for all new faculty and staff called ONE (Onboarding New Employees). Attendance is required for all new full-time (FTE) employees and 30+ hour temporary staff. During ONE you will be provided with key information regarding the College’s policies, safety, and service. You will also learn about the retirement, health insurance, and other benefits available to you and have the opportunity to meet with the benefits manager. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus!

ONE will be held on the first and third Tuesday of every month from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm in the Banner Room (Conway Campus, Building 200, Room 213A).

*A ONE session is subject to cancellation pending low enrollment – if cancelled, new hires will be invited to the next session or be scheduled for a one-on-one session with the Benefits Manager.
