Charleston County Government and its employees are tasked with serving the public in a friendly, efficient manner. At a Positive Performers Breakfast on Wednesday, May 8, the county took the time to recognize employees who received acknowledgement from the people they serve for a job well done.
Sometimes it was a simple “thank you” that made its way up the chain of command, and some took the time to write an email to an employee’s supervisor. Those messages of appreciation were returned to employees in the form of a recognition certificate given by Charleston County Administrator Kurt Taylor.
Taylor set three internal goals when he took the leadership position: excellence in customer service, boosting employee morale and recognizing good performance.
“It is an honor to serve along with employees who do their jobs so well that that they receive praise from others,” said Taylor. “As I have said before, often in our jobs the public interacts with us not because they want to, but because they have to. It is incumbent upon us to do our best to make that interaction as professional and enjoyable as possible.”
