I'll write up my notes from the event soon, but I wanted to mention it was announced the TYC Central Office would compile a list of all the questions asked at these State of the Agency events and create an FAQ document to answer common employee queries.
Serendipitously, in this post yesterday I compiled questions from Grits commenters that TYC employees wanted management to answer; only a few of the subjects were addressed today.
So after the event I went and found Jim Hurley, the new public relations chieftan for TYC. I told him that Grits readers had suggested quite a few questions on the blog that people were fearful to publicly ask, or that they felt weren't answered to their satisfaction. Would it be possible, I suggested, for those questions to be included in the FAQ document TYC will create? He thought that was a good idea and asked me to forward him the the blog post, which I did when I got home.
So here's what I sent Mr. Hurley today: if there are any glaring omissions let me know in the comments and maybe he'll let us sneak a few more in. I can't promise they'll answer every one, or any at all; I'm sure in the end that's not Hurley's call. But it's better to have asked, at least the the questions are out there.
