    So my new job begins today. A whole day of remote "welcome to the company" HR stuff, and tomorrow in the office to get equipment and meet the team.
    I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

        How do you work remote if you don’t have the hardware?

          I have no idea what that is?


          I'm just on my personal laptop for today's Webex meetings. I do not intend to use it for work beyond today.

            Waves VDI (Virtual Desktop Imaging) are being proclaimed as The Future at my company. The problem is, they expect any employee who works from home to provide their own computer (which will not be funded by the employer) to access the VDI for work.

            Never mind that my role requires me to use applications that are not compatible with the Waves VDI machines. So I’m one of the luckies who are still using a physical laptop to access Citrix VDI computers.

              Well that's awful. No, not involved here. I think it's just for today that this is on my own device.

                I have to say, in the first 90 minutes of orientation, I've heard how important "continuous improvement" is to the organization as a pretty important tenet.


                And then I check my job title (Manager of Continuous Improvement) and... ok!

                  Good luck!! Let us know how it goes. I'd be curious to see if anyone from your previous employer calls you with questions.

                    It's interesting to go from a brand new company with no meaningful onboarding process to a mature company (albeit one 1/2 the size) that has a very mature onboarding process. Right now we're going on about all of the community programs we participate in in an effort to normalize some of the social determinants of health factors.

                    One really good slide they had to demonstrate was pointing to two neighborhoods that are about 1.5 miles apart (one of which I live right next to). There is an 11+ year difference in life expectancy between them.

                        With red and green areas to further emphasize. And lines between the neighborhoods.

                          Going through HIPAA and other privacy rights now (HITECH, PAMA, Cures Act, etc.), and it's incredible how many functions of these laws I worked on to ensure compliance. Kinda satisfying.

                            That's so not what I meant.

                            Oh, sh-t. Maybe it is.

                              Then I'm not sure what you meant. I thought you were referencing red lining. I think they were, purposefully so, in an effort to show that we still have work to do.
