Meet your IDville team!

It’s that time of year again…. The 2013 Society for Human Resources Management Conference (SHRM) is right around the corner! This is such a wonderful opportunity to network with over 700 companies who are eager to provide you with solutions to your workplace obstacles. Whether you’re looking to talk to companies with expertise in training, incentives, or safety, SHRM provides you with experts that have what you’re looking for.

We’re excited to have you meet our team and hope that you will stop by to say hello and learn more about what IDville has to offer you and your company!

Here’s a little background on our team members that will attend this year’s conference:

Meet Dan:  Dan has been with the IDville team for 4 years. As General Manager, Dan oversees all product management and marketing for the IDville brand. Around IDville, he is known for the catchphrase, "talk to me," his not-so-secret designer past, and his passion for Michigan sports. Be sure to swing by the booth and say hello to "Dan the Man!" 

Meet Kelli: Kelli is the newest IDville team member so be sure to stop by and welcome her to SHRM! Kelli is IDville’s Marketing Manager with over 7 years marketing experience. She lived in the “Windy City” for the past 5 years so if you’re looking for something fun to do while you’re in Chicago, stop on by and ask Kelli for some local tips!

Meet David: David is an IDville System Specialist with 10 years product and sales experience. Around IDville, he is known for his new product ideas, sports knowledge, and experience as a catalog model (you may have even seen him in one of our IDville catalogs.) David has attended over 40 tradeshows in the last year and a half- we’d say he’s a System Specialist! Who knows, maybe you’ve seen him at a previous tradeshow. Stop by, say hello, and meet the “Road Warrior.”

Meet Kayla:  Kayla is a Marketing Specialist with over 4 years marketing experience. She grew up on a farm in  Northern Indiana therefore has acquired the nickname “Farms” around IDville as well as being known for her crazy affection for cats!  

At the IDville booth, our team will perform live demos of our ID Maker photo identification system. We are excited to show you the benefits of integrating a photo ID process and how easy it can be to implement. We will also have great raffle prizes such as a $200 Visa gift card and free giveaways. Stop by and enter to win at booth #1826. We look forward to seeing you!

Do you know who's who?

by Kayla 19. March 2013 09:15
Kayla
Take a look around your office building. Do you see office signs outside of meeting rooms and nameplates on staff member’s desks? If not, you should! Put yourself in the shoes of someone visiting your office for the first time. You walk in and have a meeting with the VP of Marketing in Conference Room #3. However, there’s no lobby area or signs to direct you to where you need to go. Not only does it help outsiders know where to go, it also creates a feeling of professionalism and camaraderie throughout your office! 

When choosing office signs and nameplates, there are a lot of options out there. I’ve highlighted several options that are sure to accompany your signage needs. 

        Know who's who in your office building!
Nameplates quickly add a professional look to your office!

DIY Nameplates: With do-it-yourself nameplates, you can quickly and easily make nameplates from your desktop as you need them. From traditional to contemporary, design, print, and insert them into our DIY nameplate sign holders. 

Engraved Nameplates: These are sure to provide a sense of belonging and a professional office image. With engraved nameplates, you can build your own nameplate in seconds and personalize each desk space and meeting room! 

ClearLook Signs: Simple to install, ClearLook signs are exclusively sold at IDville and look great on any wall. If you’re searching for something sleek, contemporary, and functional- this is for you! 

Nametags: Reduce your nametag investment with Quick Print Name tags. Simply create a label of the employee’s name and apply it to the name tag. Name tags can be engraved with your logo and your choice of graphics. With Quick Print Name tags, you’ll be able to quickly make new name tags and reuse old name tags, too! 

To shop our full-line of nameplates and office signs, click here.  

If you have any questions, call one of our customer service representatives today at 1.866.438.4553 or email me

by Kayla 12. March 2013 10:00
Kayla
For those of you that have to wear an ID card every single day, you know how easy it is for your ID to start looking worn out and dirty. Whether you use your badge for door access (which means frequent scanning) or simply for photo identification reasons, it’s easy for daily wear and tear to get the best of your ID card. That’s why ID badge holders are a great accessory! Not only do they extend the life of your badge, they also protect the data on your card. 
 

Protect your IDs!
 Shop ID badge holders today!  

Protect your information: Secure your RFID technology with an RFID Secure Badge Holder. RFID chips encode personal information into your ID card. This information can easily be stolen so it’s critical to safeguard your information with this secure badge holder. 

Maintain a clean and healthy work environment: Prevent your ID card from transmitting germs with a Sealable Badge Holder. The seal isolates the ID card from any germs or bacteria and is easy to wipe clean. 

Protect ID cards from fading in direct sunlight: Maintain great looking ID cards with an Anti-Print Transfer Badge Holder.  This badge holder won’t stick to your ID card and prevents the ink from fading.

It’s February 14th... The same day as any other day, right? Wrong! It’s Valentine’s Day and whether you plan to celebrate by sending flowers or cooking a nice dinner with that special someone, it’s a holiday that always brings in a flourish of cards and gift giving. But it doesn’t always have to be about giving chocolates, roses, and pieces of jewelry. What about giving your employees a fun, new, stylish way to wear their ID badges all year long?  

If you or your employees have ever complained about wearing an ID badge because it doesn’t match your outfit or because you’d rather be wearing that new necklace you just purchased instead of a plain lanyard, you should consider trying one of our fashion accessories. Whether you’re looking for a colorful, beaded lanyard or a sparkly, eye-catching badge reel, IDville has something for you. Go ahead- take a look around. You’ll be glad you did! 

Display your ID in style!

How often do you perform workplace security audits?

by Kayla 5. February 2013 02:05
Kayla
Conducting a regular workplace security audit will keep your security policies up to date and your employees safe. Ideally, you want to answer "yes" to each of the following questions. If you answer "no" to any of them, identify it as a vulnerable area and develop a task force to begin researching security solutions.

This workplace security audit checklist is designed to be a general checklist that can be applied to many types of organizations and industries. As you conduct the audit, be sure to consider your personal situation. You will need to address additional issues depending on your location, employees and nature of business.
Workplace Security Audit Checklist

1. Do you have an established workplace security policy?
Include a security policy in your employee handbook that outlines security policies and procedures.

2. Have employees received security training?
All employees, not only security and human resources, should understand safety and security policies and procedures. Trained employees should watch for activity that violates security policies and know how to properly report it.

3. Is access to the building restricted or monitored?
Workplaces should prevent admitting individuals who don’t belong in the building by monitoring all entrances. Most workplaces lock all entrances except for those monitored by an employee.

Click here to read the full article on workplace security audits. If you have any questions, please email me or call one of our system specialists at 1.866.438.4553.
