Employee Support

We are here to help.

The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region empowers people with differing abilities to live, work and thrive in the community. In order to do this to the best of our ability, we are dedicated to making sure that our team members are also supported and empowered.

In addition to the internal resources which our agency provides, which are outlined lower on this page, we also partner with an Employee Assistance Program and encourage employees to utilize this service at bhsonline.com.

  • Register for Self-Service Password Reset    
    The Arc NCR IT Department is making it easier than ever for you to recover your password for Office 365 if you ever forget it. You can now reset, unlock, or change your password without having to contact us by going to any web browser! Register for Self-Service Password Reset (SSPR) to enable the feature. Register here: http://aka.ms/ssprsetup. You can complete the sign-up process using your existing Arc NCR credentials (username and password) that you use to login today. Remember your user name is the first letter of your first name and your last name. After you complete your registration, if you ever forget your password, you can reset it again yourself from any web browser. You can select “Can’t access your account?” on the sign in page to reset or unlock your account from any device (this process does not reset the password for Ascentis/NovaTime or iCM, you will continue to contact the appropriate department for support on those applications). For more information watch this training video: https://aka.ms/ssprvideo. After registering for Self-Service Password Reset you can reset or recover you password by going to https://passwordreset.microsoftonline.com/
  • Complete Multi-Factor Authentication for your email account
    For the safety and security of our team members and our organization, each employee is required to set up Multi-Factor Authentication for their employee email account. The recommended setup is for employees to receive a text with a verification code which they can enter when logging in to their employee email. The process for this is outlined step-by-step in the document linked below:
