Public Invited to Help Select Adams County's Employee of All Seasons

Adams County is preparing to select its employee of the year, known as the Employee of All Seasons, and the entire Adams County community is invited to help choose the winner. Now through Friday, Jan. 17, residents can access this online ballot that includes a brief bio for each of the finalists.

“By opening our voting process to all of Adams County, our residents will quickly discover what the commissioners already know: That our employees are highly skilled, innovative, and strongly committed to quality public service," said Steve O’Dorisio, Chair of the Board of Commissioners. "These remarkable individuals represent only a tiny fraction of the 2,200 devoted employees, many of them 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 21 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 an award in the amount of $750, and their team or work unit receives a token of appreciation. They are also recognized at the annual Employee Recognition Luncheon.
