Content Managers: Events Training

Now that events are live on the dashboard, it's time for content managers to start building events. First, you'll need to attend a training session.

160 Studio Update

The Boston Fire Department recently conducted a test of the 160 Mass Ave emergency water supply. Thousands of gallons of water were pumped to the top of the building to insure there is adequate pressure in the system to supply water where needed in the event of fire.

The roof drainage system conducted the water into the building's underground rainwater storage and distribution pipes properly, but a suspected seal in the foundation wall allowed water to leak into the basement. This caused water to enter the electrical room on that floor, and from there, to seep into studio 3.

Annual Performance Appraisals

To all managers:

This is a good time of the year for you to be mindful of the annual performance appraisal process and deadline. Last year, thanks to your efforts, we achieved tremendous success with 100% annual appraisal completion rate.

An annual performance appraisal is essential; it provides an important opportunity to discuss a staff member’s overall effectiveness, establish and review goals, continue the staff member’s professional development, and be sure expectations are discussed clearly.
