Employees to be contacted by phone, email, text as part of DOE exercise
All full-time Argonne employees will be contacted by phone, email and text Thursday afternoon, Aug. 9, 2018, as a part of an exercise taking place across the U.S. Department of Energy complex.
The personnel accountability exercise is similar to ones that took place on April 18 and May 7, 2018. The objective is to practice contacting and accounting for employees in case of an emergency. Argonne achieved a 93 percent response rate in the recent event; DOE is now looking for 100 percent.
Employees will be contacted by work phone, work email, home email, text (SMS) or mobile phone as listed in Workday. A response will be required; after you respond, the alert system will stop attempting to contact you. The messages to be sent August 9 are legitimate and are sent via an Argonne-approved and verified system.
Home phone numbers will not be contacted.
Please review this document for additional details and examples of the messages you will receive.
