The mission of the Employee Appreciation Program is to acknowledge the importance of county employees to the organization’s success and to give employees the tools needed to promote that success.

The Hunterdon County Employee Appreciation Committee was created for the purpose of developing and implementing a formal recognition program for County employees and to encourage supervisors and managers to exhibit a positive attitude toward employees and to demonstrate day-to-day appreciation to their staff and the contribution they make to the County.

The Committee meets monthly to discuss employee functions which can be held for county employees and, on an annual basis, votes on the nominations received in the previous six months.

Appreciation awards are presented to the recipients at the Annual Spring Dinner Dance. The Committee plans and holds various functions throughout the year to give employees and their families a means to gather and socialize with fellow County employees from all departments.

All employees may submit nominations. Nominees can be cited for, among other things, performing actions above and beyond his/her job duties, volunteering or taking part in a function which benefits County employees or benefits County residents (for example: American Cancer Society Relay for Life, American Heart Association Heart Walk, etc.); performing any type of community service to the residents of the County (saved a life; has helped make a difference in a person‘s life; etc.).

Any time a co-worker or fellow County employee performs an action which you feel deserves special recognition is the perfect opportunity for you to submit a nomination for that employee.

Nomination forms are available by downloading one now. The completed nomination forms should be returned to the attention of Carol Bodder, EAC Treasurer, c/o Department of Parks and Recreation, PO Box 2900, Flemington, NJ 08822-2900.

When nominating someone for an award, please be as specific and include as much detail as possible. The Employee Appreciation Committee members vote on each individual nomination received and their votes are based on the content of the nomination form, not on the number of nominations one employee may receive. Therefore, the more information you include in your nomination stating the reason for the nomination will assist the Committee in their voting process.
