At an annual leadership conference on June 6, the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce presented Montgomery County with a "Best Places to Work" award.
The Best Places to Work program recognizes organizations that provide innovative and sustainable employment and leadership practices. Pictured here are Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce representatives; Jen Harris, Montgomery County Public Information Director; and Sherri Blevins, Chair, Montgomery County Board of Supervisors.
Montgomery County employees nearly 600 fulltime and part-time individuals who work in over 12 different physical locations. In an effort to encourage employee collaboration, as well as emphasize core values (industrious, helpful, ethical, steadfast, and diverse), the County's leadership endorsed the launch of an Employee Engagement Committee (EEC) in 2022.
The EEC plans and coordinates activities, programs, and events for all Montgomery County employees. Fostering an organizational culture of teamwork through workplace engagement opportunities motivates employees and creates an unparalleled sense of comradery.
"The recognition Montgomery County received today by the Chamber of Commerce validates the work we do each and every day to make sure Montgomery County is a great place to live and to work," said County Administrator Craig Meadows.
"We strive to provide competitive compensation, an engaging work environment, and an innovative organizational culture for our employees. I know we certainly value each and every one of our employees and the great work they do for Montgomery County every day. It is an honor for us to be recognized as one of Montgomery County's best places to work."
