STATEWIDE RECOGNITION PROGRAM
The thousands of dedicated individuals who make up the state's workforce are state government's most important and valuable resource. The effectiveness, efficiency and quality of state government depend on the people who provide such a broad range of services that few citizens remain unaffected by their work. The dedication, talents and contributions of those individuals at all levels of state government are MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR DELAWARE every day.
Agency Recognition Programs
Each agency promotes employee recognition by developing programs to focus attention on the contributions of its employees and to foster pride, excellence and commitment in State service. The programs should provide a variety of recognition opportunities so that all employees are recognized, while at the same time highlighting the accomplishments of those who have demonstrated exemplary performance for special agency level recognition.
Agencies are encouraged to provide formal awards programs to recognize those individuals who, by their example and achievements, promote the highest standards of commitment and excellence.
Each Agency outlines its recognition events, award nomination, and selection process in a Recognition Plan. The plan is due annually for approval by October 15th.
