Since 1987, this program has honored more than 2,000 individual departmental productivity and quality improvement efforts deserving recognition by the Board of Supervisors, Chief Executive Office, Quality and Productivity Commission, and the public.
The process begins with the Productivity Managers’ Network (PMN) evaluating the entries. Commissioners from the Quality and Productivity Commission and Managers from the PMN make site visits to departments that have ranked highest. At a public ceremony, the Board of Supervisors gives special recognition to the Top Ten entries and the Grand Award Winners. At a gala event held proximate to the Board presentations, the Quality and Productivity Commission honors all participants with Awards.
