As hiring manager, you have some important actions below to ensure a seamless process.
Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS), NM Only
Your new hire will only need a DBIDS pass if working in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Forms must be submitted to the Kirtland Air Force Base Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS) office at least 10 business days prior to your sign-in date for unescorted base access. If this action has not been completed, please do so immediately to avoid base access delays.
For additional questions, hiring managers and/or delegates can contact the DBIDS office directly at 505-845-7227, M-F 7:30am – 3:00pm or visit the DBIDS website: DBIDS Security Connection site.
One week before your new hire’s start date, ensure all required accounts approved are reflecting in WebCars. If any needed accounts are not present, please request and approve them manually. To avoid disrupting automated processes, please do not go into WebCars more than one week ahead of the start date. Refer questions to CCHD at 505-845-2243.
It is wonderful to engage with your new employee as they are starting on their first day. Review the onboarding toolkits to prepare. If your new employee is onboarding onsite you may like to have a meet and greet as they are signing in and provide any equipment or resources they might need to get started.
Your new hire will receive a reporting instruction checklist through filling out the form on the Report to Work webpage.
You can also fill out this form to receive the checklist or to view all checklists see Reporting Checklist.
The new employee’s buddy should also engage with the new hire prior to their start date and during their first week. A buddy sheet will be provided to each new employee with contact information for the hiring manager, administrative professional and buddy to help make initial connections.
New Employee Orientation is held virtually for all new hires to ensure we are aligning with social distancing guidelines. Managers can find more information on the Manager Resources page within the Coronavirus Sandia Info.
