Congratulations to the Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards winners

Congratulations to the winners of the 2022 Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards, which honor employees and workgroups at King County who bring a Best-Run Government approach to their work, and have made exceptional contributions in performance, leadership, and innovation.

In a series of videos, several King County leaders, including King County Executive Dow Constantine, announced the recipients of the eight Performance Excellence Awards: five innovation awards – people, cost, service, sustainability, and equity and social justice – and three leadership awards – for people leaders, individual contributors, and the Fred Jarrett Leadership Excellence Award for senior leaders.

“The awards honor individuals and teams who demonstrate creativity, innovation, and problem solving in their work,” Executive Constantine said in his introduction to the awards. “They recognize employees who constantly strive for continuous improvement and can point to measurable results. And they celebrate colleagues who model our values and bring a Best-Run Government approach to their work.” See the announcement and watch the videos here.
