Where’s that IT guy?


In-house IT and helpdesk staff occasionally have the reputation of being rude, arrogant and inaccessible (not everyone, of course, but even Saturday Night Live thinks so).

So when an IT professional is the exact opposite, he stands out.

Take Ken DeMaria, IT Director for PayScale in Seattle. He’s an incredibly busy guy, but knows his relationship with the rest of the company (not just those in IT and development) is important. To make himself more accessible in a very fun way, this flowchart is posted on his door. It explains his possible (sometimes likely) absence from sitting right at his desk, but also makes it clear he’s accessible to all and happy to help.
