I love it when we use our own tools wisely. Just wanted to share how Announcements and the OnSemble Mobile App helped keep staff safe!
Many of the Indiana-based Passageways crew are working from home today (This post was originally written in winter). Winter Storm Avery has iced over EVERYTHING… roads are closed from wrecks, all the schools are closed. Early this morning, our new awesome HR Person* put an Announcement out to the portal telling us to stay home if we needed, and shared an infographic on “penguin walking” to help people cut down on slipping and falling. It was a GREAT use of the portal, and I'm especially proud that a "Portal Rookie" was able to get this info wrangled fast!
Because Announcements trigger Alerts, those of us who have the OnSemble Mobile App (hit that link and scroll down for details) were notified right away. "Portal Alerts" got the message out to users email, as well. We all are doing our best to be safe, warm and provide support to you and each other today.
Stay safe, friends! Screen cap from our Portal and a (rather large, sorry) Screen Shot from the App on my iPhone are attached below. Want to know more about the Mobile App? Ask your CSM!!!
