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

Adams County is preparing to select its Employee of the Year (also known as the "Employee of All Seasons"), and the entire Adams County community is invited to help choose the winner. Through Thursday, Jan. 25, 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 residents will discover our employees are highly skilled, innovative, and strongly committed to quality public service. These remarkable individuals represent only a tiny fraction of the 2,100 devoted individuals, many of them county residents themselves, who comprise the Adams County team.

The finalists in the Employee of the Season 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 23 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 trophy and $750 check, and their team or work unit receives a token of appreciation. They are also recognized at the annual Employee Recognition Luncheon.
