Employee Award Programs

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
-- John Quincy Adams

Every working day, millions of public sector employees go to offices, operate vehicles, repair machines, maintain highways, assist the disadvantaged, enforce our laws, protect the fragile ecology, and perform myriads of services for the public good. Through experience, they know how operations are performed in the most intimate detail. They are at the point of delivery and understand why efforts are successful, as well as when they fail and why they fail. Day in and day out, government workers see opportunities to better service delivery and reduce costs. They have important and vital concepts about improvement that need to be nurtured and encouraged in some systematic manner.
-- (Employee Innovation and Government Productivity. Edward H. Downey and Walter L. Balk, 1976.)
