Micromanagement: State employee wrestles with three page DHHS email signature policy
Earlier this week I noted McCrory’s Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos had issued an email signature policy for employees that was longer than the bill put together touting the Governor’s plan privatizing health care for the poor. I got a great comment I wanted to share from a state employee, S, who is wrestling with implementation (of the signature policy, not selling off our public health care system):
This email signature policy is the dumbest thing I have seen in quite awhile!!
As a state employee with antiquated Windows programs (I still use Word 2003) it has taken up a good hour of my time today, and assistance from two coworkers, to try and get 11 pt font in black color for the signature on the emails I reply to – and we did NOT succeed! So now it is on to IT guy to get it fixed! What a brilliant use of public resources, right?
