January 12, 2024 – The City of Midland reminds its residents to share and recognize their amazing experiences with City staff members by submitting nominations for the City Strive Employee Awards.
The City Strive Awards is an employee recognition program developed to encourage and recognize City of Midland employees that strive to exceed residents' expectations, exceed the highest standards of service to the community, and exemplify the City’s culture and values.
Areas of recognition through the program:
- Above & Beyond
- Safety First
- Integrity & Professionalism
- Respect & Inclusion
- Customer Service Excellence
Awards are given on a periodic basis and nominations may be submitted by the public at any time. Award recipients will be determined by a recognition committee comprised of members of the City's Wellbeing Task Force, an employee-led group dedicated to workplace wellbeing and staff programming. In 2023, awards were presented to seven City employees in seven different categories with dozens of nominations and positive comments submitted across all departments.
“When a City employee makes a significant impact through their work, it makes Midland a better community in which to live, work, and play,” said Director of Human Resources and Labor Relations Becky Schaefer. “Through the City Strive Awards program, we give residents a way to officially recognize the amazing public servants they have working on their behalf every day as well as an opportunity for our staff to receive the recognition they deserve.”
