Greetings. In case you were wondering, “ICYMI” is short for “in case you missed it.” And this is a weekly digest of recent news, events, and content in and around Ivanti and Ivanti.com. We hope you find it both interesting and useful. Let us know via email to [email protected] – and thanks!
This Week’s Big News: Team Building, Bike Building, and Giving Back at Ivanti!
OnSide is a charity in the UK that works with underprivileged youth. The organization provides activities and learning programs that let young people from 8 to 19 years of age socialize safely and positively.
Ivanti’s User Workspace Management engineers and product managers in Daresbury decided to support OnSide in a fun, unique way. They divided themselves into teams, each of which was “allocated a workshop area with tool kit, bike stand, and a partly assembled bike.” Each team then had to assign a specific skill to each team member, and attend workshops or participate in challenges to fill any knowledge or resource gaps. Each team then had to submit a build plan for approval, build a working bicycle, and, of course, have it certified by an engineer before donating it to OnSide.
Read the great blog post by Hannah Curtis to learn more about the exercise, the results, and the reactions of some of the lucky bicycle recipients. Then, learn more about Ivanti’s community involvement efforts – and maybe get involved in some community involvement yourself!
