If you are a new hire, we require that you provide a photo that will be added to your record.

For new hires, there are a few guidelines we ask that you follow in selecting (or capturing) your photo:

  • Have someone else take your photo. No Selfies. We recommend the photo be taken from a distance of about 8 feet. You may zoom to include head and shoulders.
  • Photo must be in color and well-lit. Photo must be taken against a white or light-colored background.
  • Submit a high-resolution digital photo that is not blurry, grainy, or pixelated.
  • Directly face the camera with both eyes open and a neutral facial expression or a natural smile.
  • Glasses may be worn if there is no glare or reflection.
  • No hats, headgear, sunglasses, headphones, earbuds, face coverings.
  • If you wear a hat or head covering for religious purposes, ensure that the hat or head covering in your photo is part of traditional or religious attire worn continuously in public.
  • Do not use filters commonly used on social media. Do not edit your photo to remove the background.
