Congratulations to our 3rd Quarter 2023 Employee Recognition Winners!

The Co-Worker Who Nominated Tina Wrote:
Tina is the Lead Custodian and oversees the County’s custodial staff of over 20 people. Tina’s attention to detail and commitment is a testament to her professionalism. Tina routinely shows up early, stays late, and is instrumental in ensuring the cleaning and maintenance of County buildings is exemplary. Tina trains new hires, schedules staffing, manages employees, participates in getting new hires interviewed, and handles just about anything that comes up. She is always in a good mood and is a joy to have around. Facility Services would not be the same without her.

Although our external winner has chosen to remain anonymous, the following can be said about their nominations and the reasons they were chosen for recognition:

This employee went way above their job requirements to do something for a member of the public that had an enduring impact. This and the other nomination showed that what this employee exhibited on an every day basis was that the job was not a job for them. They demonstrated the same passion and care on all the time. This employee told me that they felt that they didn’t deserve recognition, that they were just doing what anyone else would. But that’s what deserves recognition. People that are always striving for better, that consistently see more in what they’re doing than tasks to check off on a list, that see the people we serve behind every interaction. So we congratulate them on their accomplishment and say thank you.

About The Employee Recognition Program

Here at Livingston County, we put our residents first and strive to set the standard in public service. We firmly believe that every job is important and every employee contributes to our overall mission of delivering quality services. Every day, more than 700 men and women come to work for Livingston County. Some have dedicated decades to serving the great people of our county.

Livingston County’s Employee Recognition Program was created to recognize the dedication and exemplary customer service that our employees display in their everyday work. If a Livingston County employee has gone above and beyond to display outstanding customer service, please nominate the employee and share your story with us.

The top employee of each calendar quarter will be recognized at a Board or Finance Committee Meeting, the annual State of the County address, be featured in an article in the County newsletter and on the County website, as well as with a certificate of appreciation and a token of appreciation.
