The ITS Functional and Technical Skills Survey deadline has been extended to May 24, 2013.
Please remember to fill out the Functional and Technical Skills Survey for ITS state employees by May 24! You should have received an email in your ITS account on May 6 sent on behalf of Brian Digman which included a link to the survey. If you did not receive it, please send an email to the Skills Survey mailbox below.
This voluntary skills survey will allow you to self-identify your capabilities in specific tools, technologies, and work functions. Providing this information will enable the ITS leadership team to:
identify training needs and gaps
identify opportunities where knowledge sharing can meet immediate and future needs
identify opportunities for matching skill sets to work assignments and projects both within the current cluster and possibly outside the cluster
Your participation is key to making ITS a great place to work!
ITS tops the charts with 115 employees registered for the annual CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge winning the award for largest participation of a state agency.
The 2013 CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge was held on Thursday, May 16. This race has been held each spring in Albany since 1980 with a course bringing participants through Albany’s historic streets and Washington Park. Nearly 8,000 runners and walkers from organizations around the state participated in this year’s event.
With 115 of our employees registered, the ITS team won the award for Largest Participation of a State Agency! Having only been an agency for under six months, this is an accomplishment all ITS should be proud of!
Thank you to all who participated and helped with the race.
Tara Stachelski has been named Director of Communication Infrastructure and Operation Services
