At the 2nd Annual Employee Picnic, Mayor Walsh announced the PROPs Award Recipients.
In case you missed it: This year several City employees were recognized at the 2nd annual employee picnic by way of a new employee recognition program. The awards are called PROPs, which stands for Peers Recognizing Other Peers, and the program allows coworkers to recognize each other. There are four PROPs categories; Teamwork, Leadership, Customer Service, and Commitment. City employees nominated their coworkers for one of the categories and included a narrative explaining how the employee demonstrates excellence in that specific category.
36 Nominations were submitted; some people were nominated more than once by different people! In order to select an award recipient for each category, a group of 25 City employees read and ranked the nominations. The ranking system led to a score, and the nomination with the highest score in each category received the award.
