IT Standards Brochure
ITS Organizational Performance Standards

The Information Technology Services Department (ITS) is a team of people with complementary strengths who are committed to a common purpose, who aspire to consistently drive toward a higher standard of performance, and who hold each other mutually accountable for the success of the organization. To succeed as an organization, we must also succeed as individuals…as we are only as strong as our weakest link. With that credence, the Organizational Performance Standards Document is used as the guide for “walking the walk” for a team comprised of highly skilled, highly accountable professionals with a passion to provide quality services that matter to our customers. Take a look…..see how we roll!

First Day:

ITS INSIDER INFO: The Parking Garage is eight floors. When you get off the 8th floor of the Parking Garage, you will be on the 6th floor of the Administrative Building. This confuses a lot of people!

Congrats! You must be very talented AND have a passion to serve the citizens of Manatee County! Human Resources will be your first stop. As an FYI, the Human Resources Team will provide you instructions before your first day on the job….where to park, where to report to, and what you will be doing for the first part of the day.

Generally, ITS is business casual. Step it up a notch for Executive Meetings. Drop it down a bit for out in the field work.

After the Human Resources detail work, come join the team in the early afternoon of your first day. Our Human Resource liaison will show you around and you will be introduced to your Functional Team Partner. He or she will be your go-to for the duration of your successful acclimation to the new surroundings.

Lunch? Your choice……brown bag it or walk to one of the great local eatery’s. Either way, we will make certain you have company!

Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to get settled into your new digs and meet with the Manager of the Team.

Moving Forward:

There will be a lot of opportunities to understand the details. You will meet with the ITS Director and the Leadership Team. Your Functional Team Partner will make sure you have access to the tools you need and explain why those tools are important. We’ll make certain we get invites on your calendar so you’ll know what the organization does from the 30,000-foot view. And, most importantly, make sure you are engaged in the small stuff that is directly related to your realm of expertise.

About Us:

You’ve settled in and it’s important to know some stuff that will help in understanding the culture of the organization. First, the ITS Vision and Mission:
