Agency Contact SOP #
For team members, knowing who to contact within our agency for a specific topic is critical to being a successful agency. If a team member knows who to contact and when, it saves time, money, and resources.
*Use the Team Directory for names, department, position, etc.
Contact using Slack, email, phone, text or whatever you’re most comfortable with. The primary way of communication within our agency is through Slack or email. Be informed that when you ask questions on Slack, it may take some time for a team member to reply depending on their day. If you have an urgent message, call, text or send a message via WhatsApp. WhatsApp is our preferred method of emergency communication, however, a phone call is best.
Before Asking Questions to Your Superior: #
Agency Contact Flow #
It’s essential to follow the chain of command. We have a system to ensure all inquiries are addressed quickly and efficiently.
Human Resource #
Domestic & Non-domestic employees (or contractors) should contact Mel for higher-level HR issues such as pay or benefits. For anything related to attendance, sick leave, or essential questions, team members should go to Mai. Mel and Mai work together to ensure all team members get what they need when required.
Note: if you call in sick, please follow the contact flow; support notify team leaders and Mai, team leaders notify Jonelle and Mai.
Application Support #
From time to time, you may experience an issue or have a request with one of the many applications our organization utilizes on a regular basis. Potential examples of this include being unable to sign into a certain application, or if you are having issues adding support staff personnel to a specific platform or if you need an adjustment made on reporting. In this case, please contact Pee Jay via slack channel #team-operations-systems-applications-support. Note: Pee Jay’s role is Intake Specialist and Operation Application Support. Applications include but are not limited to Agency Analytics, Callrail, Slack, Teamwork, Desk, etc.
