  57. 57. The New “Technically Connected You”
  58. 58. How this information was compiled…. Through my network of 500+ LinkedIn connections I asked: Do you equip your staff with cell phones and/or laptops? If so, which makes and models? What are your expectations when you provide this equipment? Namely do you expect staff to have the equipment on all the time or just business hours? Do you provide support and training to your new staff on how to use this technology? Is there on-going technical support or does staff have to just "wing it'?
  59. 59. Expectations of your connectivity…… If there is an “urgent” project or task in process, you will be expected to answer immediately no matter the time of day or day of the week. Most companies expect some overtime but not complete 24/7. Many said emails must be answered within 24 hours. If you are working at a client site, you will not have a cell phone and your laptop but you will have one off site for processing timesheets and communicating with your managers. There will be little to no training using this equipment as there is an expectation that you know how to use it.
  60. 60. Company Issued Laptops Most companies issue a Dell laptop but there will not be training or support. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is becoming more popular. As it tablets. Most will have an Access Security Key or “Fob”. You will have to check with your IT department to see when they do updates.
  61. 61. Basic Programs The Microsoft Office Suite of programs Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. You will want to learn how to use each one of these programs to be able to view the files, save them to the proper areas of your computer and create documents. For Outlook, being able to learn how to Save or Archive emails, Create a Signature block, or Create Folders. Remember emails carry viruses: Don’t open an .exe or .zip file, or something that “looks” official – it’s not Word, Excel or PowerPoint – creating the documents but also remembering where to Save them.
  62. 62. Cell Phones You will either be given a cell phone but more than likely expected to use your own. Blackberry, iPhones and Droids are all used. You will need to have a phone for voicemail, to connect with your email and to text. Phones are now set to be Geolocators, so this function will be turned on for your phone. You will need to turn it off, but there will still be the emergency locator. Battery lives vary per phone dependent on how much graphic or internet usage you use. Charge your battery every night.
