Congratulations to the 2020 Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards honorees

Several King County leaders today announced the honorees for the 2020 Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards in a series of video announcements, recognizing employees and teams for their exceptional contributions to performance, leadership, service, and innovation to better serve our customers.

“These awards honor employees and workgroups for their exceptional contributions in performance, leadership, and innovation,” King County Executive Dow Constantine said. “Recognizing great work is important; celebrating our accomplishments is important; and that’s the purpose of the Performance Excellence Awards. It’s an opportunity to celebrate our own successes and the employees who are responsible for them.”

The Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards were created to recognize projects, improvements, and innovations in departments that are driving exceptional, measurable results. What makes these accomplishments even more impressive is the extraordinary challenges and uncertainty that employees were under with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eight awards were presented for 2020 in two categories:

Innovation Awards: People, Cost, Service, Equity and Social Justice, and Sustainability

Leadership awards: People Leaders, Individual Contributors, and the Fred Jarrett Leadership Excellence Award.

This year, the awardees are being honored in a series of video announcements featuring several King County leaders – including Executive Constantine, Chief of Staff April Putney, and members of the Executive’s Senior Leadership Team. Leaders also attended team meetings to personally congratulate the honorees.
