When King County employees do business with each other, the public and other external customers/clients, we are transparent. Part of that transparency is letting people know who we are. KCIT provides all King County the ability to use a personal photo for their Lync/Skype connection. A photo is helpful because it allows people to put a face with a name. It’s very helpful when you are meeting someone for the first time at a remote location or even in a crowded meeting. (We recognize there are certainly safety situations where we don’t want photos up.)
KCIT has put together a single PowerPoint slide that walks you through the Skype photo process. We have streamlined it so it’s very easy. Good luck. We want to see that lovely smile!
