Is shopping online while at Vegas jobs ok?

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

More and more employers have become relaxed when it comes to shopping online while working at Vegas jobs, according to a new survey.

The Robert Half survey found that more than one-quarter (27 percent) of chief information officers (CIOs) interviewed said their companies allow unrestricted access to shopping sites – an increase of 17 percentage points since 2012. Another 42 percent said they allow access but monitor activity for excessive use. Less than one-third (30 percent) of CIOs said their firms block access to online shopping sites.

Robert Half Technology offers these tips for employees who are considering online holiday shopping at the office:

Learn the rules. Before you shop, make sure you’re familiar with your company’s web policy. Most employers have rules about sites or hours to avoid. If the policy is unclear, play it safe and save your shopping for before or after work.
Limit surfing. Unrestricted access to the Internet doesn’t mean you should spend all of Cyber Monday searching for deals at your desk. If you plan to do the majority of your holiday shopping online and want to snag deals that day, take a personal day off. Or conduct your browsing away from the office and limit your shopping activity to quick transactions when at work.
Log out of accounts. After you’ve completed your online holiday purchases at work, remember to log out of your merchant accounts on your computer to protect your personal information.

“Employers recognize that some flexibility is needed to help workers successfully manage their time during the hectic holiday season,” said John Reed, senior executive director of Robert Half Technology. “Allowing professionals to attend to the occasional personal errand at work, like holiday shopping, can make all the difference to them during this busy time of year.”

City hires for Vegas executive jobs

Monday, December 1st, 2014

The city has recruited a key hire for Vegas executive jobs.

Las Vegas hired an executive director to help manage the Las Vegas Downtown Achieves (LVDA) Program, a collaborative public/private partnership designed to improve the academic outcomes of children attending schools in the downtown area.

Las Vegas Downtown Achieves (LVDA) positions Nevada to be a national leader through a collective impact approach to academic success. The organization provides the platform for dialogue and meaningful actions necessary for a high quality education experience in its 11 target schools.

Community leaders within public and private organizations have come together to create a collective focused on supporting schools in downtown Las Vegas, and to craft a model that can be replicated across the state and the country.

Michelle Layton, who started working for the city this week, will oversee and direct all administration of the organization as executive administrator. Layton, former community affairs executive director and community promotions director for CBS television affiliate, KLAS 8 News NOW, previously served on LVDA’s teacher engagement committee for the last year.

educational attainment has become a focus. LVDA began in early 2013 to focus on ensuring the academic success for 12,500 children attending schools in and around the downtown core of Las Vegas.

LVDA is made up of multiple government, nonprofit and private sector partners, and is designed to improve the academic outcomes of children located in seven elementary, two middle and two high schools within the Clark County School District.

Layton will also be focusing her efforts on collaborating and connecting with school principals and teachers, a crucial component in the approach.
