The Employee Recognition Committee (ERC) was created on January 1, 1982. The ERC’s mission is:
- To recognize employees for years of service. To create and maintain a positive work environment.
- To create and maintain a culture of recognition. To motivate high performance.
The Employee of the Month award is one way we achieve this mission.
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 Employee Recognition Committee was pleased to announce that Joelle Frank, Human Resources Assistant, Department of Human Resources, was selected as the December 2020 Employee of the Month. This special award was presented on behalf of the Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, at 10 a.m.
Joelle Frank, a valued member of the Human Resources recruitment team, was recognized for her efforts to implement virtual recruitment and hiring processes in response to COVID-19. Joelle researched best practices and coordinated a seamless transition to virtual orientations. She routinely goes the extra mile to ensure superior internal and external customer service. Her professionalism and willingness to assist when needed and provide detailed information about the hiring process greatly improved Calvert County Government’s public image.
Joelle has worked for Calvert County Government Human Resources for two years. As a human resources assistant, she posts all new job listings, schedules interviews, compiles interview questions and eventually contacts individuals who have been selected for hiring. Joelle’s job not only focuses on disseminating jobs to the public, but also giving applicants the resources they need to succeed on job applications and interviews. These resources include tips on how to improve applications and résumés and information on how the hiring process works.
“We’re always here to help answer questions because we really want to see people do great when they apply for jobs,” Joelle said.
Prior to her current position, Joelle was a switchboard operator in the Department of Finance and Budget. In her free time she likes to be with her kids and do crafts with them. Thank you for all that you do, Joelle.
