My boss recently had a theft issue and all of us lost a ton of equipment.
All the computers and other gear were grabbed.
It set our company back so much that I was out of work for almost a week. Now I am back at the office and the company is being active about theft control. They called a building access code service while the office was out of order. A current security plan was put in place and now all the workers need to adapt to it. Each office area has keyless entry; You are given access clearance for the areas you are allowed to work. So conference rooms are no longer simple to get into anymore. Even the elevator won’t take me up to particular floors I don’t have clearance for. The biggest hurdle however is getting in the front door. The front door has an electronic card access system. I have to use my company card in order to get in the front door, then it is all code from there. You would believe that would be simple. An electronic card plan is self explanatory. It has been nothing however issues for me because I am so dumb. I have forgotten my card and needed to drive back to my house a couple of times. I also had another time where my card did not work in the scanner and I had to get a current one. This totally sets me back with my work day. I am usually an hour late when the card is a concern.
