Governor presents Public Service Achievement Awards
to 76 state employees
On May 7, Governor Mitch Daniels presented the seventh round of Governor’s Public Service Achievement Awards to 76 state employees representing 10 agencies.
The efforts of these employees produced over $12 million in savings to the state.
“We started these awards with a sense of promise and a sense of hope that we were going to be able to not merely recognize the best among us in public service, but also over the years build a culture of customer service and high performance,” Daniels said. “We are here to honor the very best from the last 12 months, but really we are honoring everybody in what is now provably, undeniably, statistically, factually by every conceivable measure the best and most productive group of state employees anywhere in America.”
The governor created the Public Service Achievement Award in December, 2005. State agencies submit nominations of individuals or teams for review and recommendation to the governor. Teams receive up to $4,000 to be divided among team members while individual award winners receive $1,000. In 2011, awards were presented to 85 state employees.
