Plant Operations recently unveiled its first ever Facts-At-A-Glance publication, a 12-page full color booklet thats packed with information about the services offered by all of the departments within Plant Ops. A first print run of one thousand copies will be used as a marketing tool for our clients, including UH staff and students.

Frank Sanchez, financial assistant 2 in Finance & Operations, chaired the Facts-At-A-Glance Committee which consisted of staff members that represented each department. The emphasis of the publication is customer service. Its a way to get our voice out there, Sanchez explained. We are informing the campus about our services and why were here.

Features include departmental directories on Environmental Health & Risk Management, Facilities Maintenance, Facilities Planning & Construction, and Finance & Operations, a Points of Pride section, bullet points of the main services offered by each department, and loads of stand-out photographs that show employees at work, plus some of UHs award winning buildings. Originally, the committee was charged with creating a small brochure, but when the members realized that Plant Ops provides more services than what a brochure could explain, the booklet was birthed. The concept sprang from an initiative originally developed through F&O which created a brochure to showcase its services. In addition, Human Resources will include the booklet in all new hire packages. For more info, contact Sanchez at 35612.
