For this event, we needed to coordinate live video feeds from 8 remote locations including our local office. I ran test sessions with each city involved multiple times to make sure we had not missed any technical issue.
The day of the event, we had a flawless execution with live video from all 9 cities as awards were handed out to employees both locally and remotely and they were able to be seen and congratulated by the agency's leadership.
I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge excellence.
A few weeks ago, I challenged you to turn our dream of an OIG Awards Ceremony that could be enjoyed by all of our employees into reality. Well, on March 4, 2015, not only did you meet the challenge head on, but you did so with outstanding expertise and professionalism. The combined IT technical expertise from both OIG and OASAM made it possible for our organization to conduct the ceremony for the first time as a nationwide, webcam simulcast via WebEx in eight different geographical sites. This allowed all OIG personnel to be interactive and present in ‘real time’ for the broadcast held in the DOL Cesar Chavez Auditorium.
The execution of the feat was so great, our employees are still talking about the great customer support. It was the demonstrated collaborative team effort that resulted in the successful outcome of this event. In my opinion, this is a perfect example of what great results can be produced when the collective talents of highly-skilled professionals are put to the test…they far exceed the expected outcome!
Again, thanks for a job well-done!
