Hillsborough Honors Employees for Innovation, Customer Service and Endurance
The Town of Hillsborough recognized 37 employees Tuesday, Nov. 13, for innovation, customer service and endurance demonstrated during Fiscal Year 2018.
Town Manager Eric Peterson presented the awards during a regular meeting of the Hillsborough Board of Commissioners.
“More important than our vehicles, equipment and buildings are you, our people,” Peterson told the employees. “Everybody who works for the Town of Hillsborough is unique in the way you handle issues and the skills you bring. It makes me really proud to work with you.”
The awards program was implemented 10 years ago to highlight and reward the ideas and actions of employees that go beyond the expectations of their jobs.
Awards were made for heroic life-saving acts, kind and generous deeds, extraordinary effort to compensate for vacant positions, and the use of skills and innovative ideas to save the town money.
Awards recipients received a trophy or certificate, a monetary award, and for some, an extra day of vacation leave, based on their award level.
Citizens can recommend town employees for an award by contacting Human Resources Director/Town Clerk Katherine Cathey by email or by phone at 919-296-9441. The next round of the awards program will cover Fiscal Year 2019 — between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019.
