Soliciting staff

What's the ASU policy on staff soliciting business for their second job? Several team members get solicitations from someone in senior leadership asking them to connect on social media in connection with their second job in real estate sales. This makes the team feel uncomfortable, first by not knowing this person had a second job, then the fact this person is senior leadership so they feel obligated to connect and possibly use their advertised service. Is there any ASU policy regarding outside employment and solicitation to others? Thanks!

Resolution:

Several university policies may be applicable to this situation. SPP 312: Employment outside ASU and SPP 801: Employee Conduct and Work Rules, outline expectations of behavior for staff employees. Additionally, ACD 125: Computer, Internet, and Electronic Communications Information Management Policy outlines appropriate usage of university owned computers and resources. Concerns of a violation of a university policy can be directed to leadership within the unit or to Human Resources.



Double standards

Double standards in management at ASU. A director happens upon an ASU vehicle at a nail salon where an operations manager is getting a manicure during work hours but perhaps it was the operations manager lunch hour since Cheryl's work time start early.  Maybe understandable.  The confusion might come from the same director making a phone photo of a PTS golf cart parked at the Wells Fargo building on University just east of Mill and having a staff member questioned and counseled.  It turns out the staff member was delivering a packet to Mitch in the PTS office on the second floor of the building. Was that a slight misunderstanding and was the staff member forgiven for the mistake of parking by the building for q quick drop off. 

WOW, now it would seem the PTS management group is not held to the same rules and regulation as  staff when following the annual training as general staff as now we find inappropriate message not on Facebook or social medial but directed to young men in the department phones.  Why would someone at this position choose to send videos of push up in workout clothes, sultry photo shots and scantly covered legs  with a cup between with a suggestive message. Is ASU moving back to the Party School theme and encouraged by management upper departments by looking the other way and maybe letting behavior slide?  What happened to those of us who respect our positions and are proud to be part of the ASU family.
