‘The ITIS Crowd’ is my favorite recurring post, because it’s just positive and fun information about US. Tidbits of information like this, whether it’s work-related or personal, help us all get to know each other a little better. And just knowing a little more about each other can spark conversations in the halls or before a meeting that will strengthen our relationships with each other.

“Building friendly relationships among coworkers creates a fertile ground for teamwork… and fosters an environment that engenders more creativity, as people innovate most when they feel supported and the work culture is upbeat and fun.”         -Lynn Taylor (national workplace expert and author)

Even though I try to get around and find things out about people, I know that there are TONS more amazing/cool/interesting things going on with all of us. So PLEASE! Send along these kinds of tidbits about yourself or a coworker (who you know wouldn’t mind) so that I can have more fun writing this post and so that we can all get to know each other a little better. :)

The epic tournament will take place soon… in the meantime, everyone is invited to join the usual group for bowling on Thursdays at noon. Just contact Chris K. the day before to make sure they’re going that week and so that she can reserve enough lanes. 

Break Room

We’ve got a fancy shmancy new screen in the Break Room, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. Thanks to AIS, this screen showcases whose turn it is to clean AND who’s on the Treats R Us Most Wanted List! What a great tool to help us remember to keep our lovely Break Room clean and to remind us all to stay honest. ;)

September Outages

In September we had 23 submitted outages. 6 of those were submitted by LeRoy Brown, which makes him September’s winner for most submitted outages. Since we’re late in recognizing him, LeRoy has express permission from all of us to help himself to free popcorn for the next TWO months. Lucky guy!

Remember, the main point of using the Service Disruption System is COMMUNICATION. In just about all that we do here, communication is key. The more we keep each other aware and in the loop of relevant items and issues, the stronger our working relationships and the smoother everything runs overall.

The ITIS Crowd

You may remember Harley Anderson. He worked in AIS before taking off to Arizona where he earned a certification in Sound Engineering. Well, he’s back, and now working in Media Services. So here are a few things about him, in case you forgot or never knew: He was, in fact, named after the motorcycle. He’s the drummer in a band called Brightside. And he’s been back working as part of the ITIS Crowd for just over a month now. Welcome back, Harley.

Thursday bowling continues to be a fun, team-building experience, and we’re gonna keep doing it until people stop showing up.

If you’d like to join in the fun, contact Chris Kirkham to let her know by the end of today so that she can reserve enough lanes. 12pm tomorrow in the SLWC, price is around $5. See you there!
