Keys to Success

Best Practices

Web Clock Usage
  1. When working more than 6 hrs a day, remember to clock out for meals
    • Ex: Punch In, Punch Meal, Punch In, & Punch Out
  2. When OneUSG Connect is down, use this form to record hours and submit to David so that hours can be entered when the system is up again
Daily Stand-ups
  1. Check-in daily and on time
    • Detail what you’re working on, problems you’re having, and where you’d like feedback
  2. Depending on format, provide constructive criticism/feedback for teammates 
  1. When creating custom blocks or content, use the following nomenclature to ensure efficiency in content maintenance for all users
    • Page block is used on – Superblock – Title of block
    • Ex: Home – Superblock – Best Practices
  2. Avoid saving using ‘Modify current revision, no moderation’
    • It overwrites the previous revision removing the option to revert if anything goes wrong

Client Interactions

  1. Remain professional in all communication methods whether it’s through a virtual meeting or email
  2. Document everything discussed and keep your manager & team up-to-date with what’s being asked of you
Scope of Work
  1. When a client asks you to do something, judge whether or not it’s in your scope of work
    • Asking you to help with graphics for their personal social media account IS NOT within your scope
    • Asking you to create graphics for the the departments website or social media account IS within your scope
  2. If you’re asked to do something you don’t know how to do, complete the following steps before replying to your client
    • Research to see if you can learn how to do it yourself
    • Then ask team members for assistance
    • Escalate to David otherwise for further instruction
