Mailing Lists

There are several mailing lists available to you for contacting groups within the company.  Below is a diagram explaining how our major distribution groups function.  “Employee” groups do not include consultants, temps and interns, and are primarily for region specific HR Communications (i.e. Benefits).  Additional international groups are under review.

Iconix “All” Groups are primarily broken down by site locations and divisions and are best used to communicate with an office.

Iconix All – Employees Global does not include any consultants, temps, or interns

The Iconix Intranet is One Year Old!

Exactly one year ago on December 19, 2016, Iconix Brand Group launched their own intranet with the inaugural post of a slide show of pictures from our 2016 Holiday Party.

 

Over the past year, we have published over 110 posts that featured important Human Resources and Finance information, Marketing news, Town Hall recaps, Videos and Presentations from key speakers and articles and slideshows of our many Employee Activities.

 

In May we announced the winner of our Naming Contest; and we now refer to the intranet as The Loop!

 

The Loop has become a repository for important forms, calendar of events and reporting resources such as the Licensee Optimization Report.

 

With over 20 thousand unique page views, The Loop is a go-to resource for all things Iconix.

 

Look for even more content and improvements in 2018!

 

Thank you to the Intranet Publishers and Team for keeping us all “in The Loop”.

 

Take a look back at our first year memories!

Lobby Kiosk Deployed

We have installed kiosks in the lobbies on the 3rd and 4th floors which will be in use as of Monday, September 25th.   These kiosks will be used by visitors to gain entry to the Iconix offices when no one is seated at the receptionist’s desk at the 3rd floor entrance.

This is how it will work:

  • A sign has been posted on the door instructing visitors to use the kiosk
  • Instructions
    • Visitors will search for the name of their host using the touch screen
    • Once found, they’ll “tap” the name of their host, and enter their own name
    • At that time Employees can expect:
      1. A call will be placed to your desk phone from the (234) area code with the visitor’s name.  A message will be left in the case of no answer.
      2. A message will be sent to your Iconix email from “MyGreetly” with the visitor’s information
      3. A message on the kiosk will instruct the visitor that their party has been notified and to wait
      4. You or a designee will greet the guest at the lobby entrance

Please be mindful if you are expecting a visitor or delivery.  Call Forwarding to your cell phone when you step away from your desk will keep you in touch.

The 3rd floor doors will be locked at all times starting, please remember to carry your security card with you to gain entry.  To exit you will need to use the button on the left of the door. 

If you do not have an access card – email helpdesk@iconixbrand.com
