2019 Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards

King County Executive Dow Constantine

Last year, I launched the Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards to recognize individual employees and workgroups whose innovations and improvements are delivering excellence for our customers, our organization, and our region.

The awards recognize the employees and teams who are achieving exceptional improvement results for the people we serve and driving us toward our True North: Making King County a welcoming community where every person can thrive.

In 2018, we honored 15 nominees and five award recipients for their hard work and service excellence. This year’s award categories will include Innovation, Leadership Excellence, and the Road to Excellence. Anyone can nominate a team or team member for the Innovation and Leadership Excellence Awards. The Road to Excellence Awards are given to divisions that achieve one of three levels of progress in the Lean Maturity Model.

I encourage you to start thinking about projects from the past year and team members which you would like to nominate for an award. You may review the nomination criteria here. The nomination period opens Nov. 12.

Thank you in advance for helping us build a King County culture where every employee is committed to innovation, continuous improvement, and performance excellence.
