Introducing Brand New Comic Strip

Follow the Adventures of IT Team & Favorite Dog, Java

October 23, 2020

Earlier this year, we introduced a new Employee Self-Service Center (ESC) site for HR and IT support. As a fun way to get to know all of the great features of ESC and the IT team that developed the site, we’re excited to introduce a new monthly comic strip to our Blue Nation Online readers!

The comic strip is about the real-life IT team and their mascot, Javascript. Follow the characters as they teach us a thing or two about the benefits of ESC, and why we should be using it. The team is also excited to share some exciting enhancements to the site in the coming months. So, without further adieu, we hope you enjoy this new comic strip, and follow along with us on the adventures that lie ahead!
