  • • A welcome message from your new supervisor.

  • • A welcome message from your sponsor.

  • • Your supervisor and sponsor will ensure that your work area is set up and ready for you.

  • Phase II - Onboarding. Making you comfortable and taking care of requirements. Onboarding starts on your first official duty day and continues for 10 business days. During onboarding you’ll complete administrative tasks such as learning about employee benefits, understanding what a performance plan is and how to build one, taking mandatory training, and receiving briefings from various staff sections.


Reporting Instructions for Contractors

As a new contract employee, please report directly to your Contracting Officer Representative (COR). They will assist in locating the G-1 Civilian Human Resources Division in Aabel Hall (Bldg 2840) Room 319, 3630 Stanley Rd.  Employees will be provided an in-processing checklist that will be returned to CHRD upon completion.  

A vital part of in-processing is attendance at the MEDCoE On-Boarding Program.  The G-1 office will schedule attendance at the appropriate session during in-processing.  Attendance is mandatory, and is generally held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month (except December).  Individual offices/sections/departments/directorates may require new employee attendance at their orientation session.
