Employees Honored For Work Toward Countywide Vision

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)–– The county today honored 43 of its approximately 19,000 employees for their work exemplifying the organization’s efforts to help the community achieve its Countywide Vision. The recognition took place during the county’s Public Service Recognition Award for Excellence ceremony. The annual event recognizes the everyday work of public servants. One employee from each county department is selected for an award based on outstanding service to the county and its citizens. This year, the criteria were focused on the Countywide Vision, www.sbcounty.gov/vision.

“It is important to take the time to recognize those who consistently perform above and beyond the call of duty to serve our residents and contribute to the realization of our Countywide Vision,” County Chief Executive Officer Greg Devereaux told the honorees, many of whom were accompanied by family and co-workers. “You are the employees who I believe we can count on the most as we do our part to help the county community achieve the Vision.” Selection is based on specific criteria including customer service, initiative and leadership, accomplishments, and the commitment to the realization of our Countywide Vision. Following the awards presentation, honorees enjoyed a reception in the County Government Center Rotunda sponsored by the San Bernardino Public Employees Association.

This year marks the 24th year the County has participated in national Public Service Recognition Week. Public employees in the United States and around the world take part in the annual celebration honoring the men and women serving America as federal, state, and local government employees. Mr. Devereaux today announced plans to expand the program in San Bernardino County next year.

“Future honorees will include not only employees nominated by their departments, but we will also provide the opportunity to recognize employees through the launch of a new Employee

Showcase,” Mr. Devereaux said. “Employees will have the opportunity to present innovative ideas, share successful initiatives and outcomes, and gain valuable feedback from top county administrators.”
