The Employee Recognition Committee (ERC) was created on January 1, 1982, to publicly recognize County employees with awards such as Employee of the Month.
The Employee of the Month award acknowledges individual excellence for superior job performance and/or special individual efforts that go above and beyond the employee’s normal job duties.
The categories for recognition are: quality of work, respect of fellow employees, effectiveness of public contact, contributions toward improving organizational morale, quantity of work, and/or actions that improve the public image of County Government.
The ERC is pleased to announce that Loretta (Lorrie) Marcum, Accounts Payable Technician, Finance & Budget, was selected as the November 2019 Employee of the Month.
Accounts Payable Technician Loretta (Lorrie) Marcum, Finance & Budget was recognized for going above and beyond to handle all aspects of Accounts Payable while her coworker was out on extended medical leave.
For five weeks, Lorrie processed all the invoices and purchase orders for the weekly check runs in a timely manner, including printing accounts payable checks (300 to 400 per week), sorting the back-up documentation, and verifying that everything balanced—a huge undertaking for one person.
Lorrie deserved the recognition for ensuring that the receipts continued to roll in even when it required her to do double duty.
