Welcome to introduce to you the staff of the Springfield Linguistics Project.
The Managing Director exercises control & oversight to ensure elements of the strategic plan are accomplished within specified timelines & available budgetary resources.
The Personal Assistant to the Managing Director ensures continuity & workflow processes are implemented in a stable workplace culture.
Ginny Xiongmao is SLP’s senior official for QA/QC. Ms. Xiongmao has additional responsibilities to manage the bamboo buffet in the staff dining room, ensuring it is appropriately stocked with nutritious healthy selections, particularly for those late-night “crunch” sessions.
SLP’s Curator of links for music, song, recreation, gaming, and contemporary life web. All the “cool” stuff.
SLP’s Curator of links for the arts, culture, history, museums, temples, traditions, Aboriginal pages, pottery, porcelain & ceramic arts. All the “neat” stuff.
Ms. Pickles is Managing Director of SLP’s new Department of Kitty Cat Affairs (DKCA). She has responsibility for communication & outreach to the worldwide fan base of Hello Kitty: sanrio.com. She also has assigned duties: (1) determining there is adequate supply of Kitty Treats available in the staff dining room at all times; and, (2) reminding other members of the SLP staff to keep sofas in the employee lounge in “good napping condition” by keeping them clean & free of clutter at all times.
The Director of Security rigidly enforces all elements of the SLP Employee Code of Conduct. He also furnishes technical support for the maintenance & repair of the espresso machine in the employee lounge. He further manages the process for ordering Chinese takeout on those nights when staff determine the dining room’s bamboo buffet is a bit too “nutritious” to support their all-night crunch session.
The senior employee for data entry. This person actually manages to complete some of his assigned duties when he is not checking his email or visiting the bamboo buffet in the employee dining room to see if any new items have been added to the menu. He is also the Designated Driver when an emergency visit to COSTCO is needed to replenish the supply of Kitty Treats in the staff dining room.
