Citizens Invited to Help Select Adams County's Employee of the Year

Adams County government is preparing to select its Employee of the Year (also known as "Employee of All Seasons"), and the entire Adams County community is invited to help choose the winner. Now through Jan. 21, county residents can access an online ballot that includes a brief bio for each of the finalists.

"By opening our voting process to all of Adams County, we are confident our citizens will quickly discover what the Board of Commissioners already knows - our employees are highly skilled, innovative, and strongly committed to quality public service," said Steve O'Dorisio , chairman of the Adams County Board of Commissioners. "These remarkable individuals represent only a tiny fraction of the 1,800 devoted individuals - many of them Adams County residents themselves - who comprise the Adams County team."

The finalists in the Employee of the Year program were chosen by their peers. Employees nominate co-workers in eight categories: Bright Idea/Creativity, Collaboration/Helping and Mentoring, Extra Effort, Good Citizenship, Making it Happen, Success in Practice, Sustainability Star, and Unsung Hero. At the end of each year, the original 25 award winners' stories are resubmitted for voting, and the winner is announced as the Employee of All Seasons.

The Adams County employee selected as the Employee of All Seasons will receive a check in the amount of $750.00 and their team or work unit receives a token of appreciation. They are also recognized at the annual Employee Recognition Luncheon.
