In this session, we will share how Virginia Tech's IT Help Desk (4Help) goes Beyond All Limits to anticipate and prepare for interruption of 4Help computing support services due to an emergency situation or hazardous condition that prohibits employees from accessing the building or room where they are located. Specifically, we will focus on how 4Help prepares to relocate for events that would cause the building that houses the Help Desk to be unsafe, dangerous, or unsuitable to inhabit or hazardous conditions that make travel to the work location dangerous for employees. The Help Desk proudly serves as first contact for Virginia Tech Alumni, employees, retirees, students, and potential students who have computing support needs and actively considers ways to limit or eliminate any delay or interruption in the service.
