      Thanks for this question. This is a popular one! The issue here is that there are a lot of rules and regulations around the federal government about how we make sure that we are protecting important information and that we’re not leaving important documents sitting around on copiers or printers if they could end up violating someone’s privacy or displaying information that just shouldn’t be available. This is an area where we’ve applied those precautions but it may not have been applied in a way that is the most efficient or effective. We’re going to create a group with IT to look at these security requirements and see if there is a way that we can make it easier so you don’t have to put your ID card in the copier and end up forgetting about it and accidentally leaving it there. Security is important and we do need to…

                          oh, and a comic on fun as a core value: <http://images.inc.com/magazine/20070801/fun_intro.pdf>.

                          :)

                          zappos is another organization with a core value of fun, and they're pretty routinely ranked as one of the best places to work, period. from their values statement <http://about.zappos.com/our-unique-culture/zappos-core-values/create-fun-and-little-weirdness>:

                          "One of the things that makes Zappos different from a lot of other companies is that we value being fun and being a little weird. We don't want to become one of those big companies that feels corporate and boring. We want to be able to laugh at ourselves. We look for both fun and humor in our daily work."

                          or, check out INC magazine's cover story on "fun, the new core value" <http://www.inc.com/magazine/20070801/>:

                          "Frivolous, we know--unless you want to attract and keep good employees and customers."

                            i agree with chris. @orient, @anonymous, why do you feel fun can't be a core value of HUD?

                            also, @anonymous, please remember that this is an open discussion by which HUD's staff will collectively decide which values we want to align most closely to, so assertions like "fun is NOT an agency's core value" could or should be preceded with a qualifier like "i think" or "i feel."

                            :)

                              integrity > trust. if all staff act with integrity, trust will naturally follow. conversely, if staff act with trust but not integrity, lots of bad stuff will happen.

                                      This is under review. There are security concerns surrounding this idea such as data loss prevention and use of data that is confidential or inappropriate. We understand the need for this capability and will continue to research options.
