Missouri State Employee Recognition Month

State Employee Recognition Month

Each year, State agencies are encouraged to recognize the efforts of their employees who enhance and improve the quality of life for Missouri citizens. This is a time to recognize and thank the outstanding state employees who have chosen to make a career of public service.

Each manager, supervisor, and employee, whether behind the scenes, or out in front, is the face that Missourians turn to for help and assistance. This time should highlight the dedication it takes to fulfill the agencies’ mission, and the pride employees take in their work and accomplishments.

Agency executives, managers and supervisors should do something that they are hopefully doing every day – show their appreciation to co-workers and colleagues for their work; and share stories of service excellence with others, both inside and outside State government.

Agency leadership is encouraged to highlight their employees’ accomplishments, and provide appropriate recognition activities (large or small) that are best suited and accessible to the employees in the agency. To find out how each State agency recognizes employees, contact their agency coordinator.

If you are planning your agencies recognition efforts and would like to know more about the recognition activities of other agencies, please refer to the State Employee Recognition Ideas page. If you would like to share information about activities that have worked well at your agency, contact the State Employee Recognition Coordinator.
