New Milford introduces employee recognition program
New Milford started a town employee of the month program at the direction of Mayor Pete Bass.
Each month’s recipient will be recognized with a plaque displayed in Town Hall.
Recommendations will be submitted by the town department heads each month.
Monika Roberts, of social services, is the first recipient. She was recognized earlier this month and Bass congratulated her again in a Facebook post.
Bass also shared praise the department submitted for Roberts. She was recognized for realizing the U.S. Postal Service wanted to move to a bar-coded mailing procedure and so she arranged for a trainer from Hartford to work with her to change the newsletter mailing. The department mails 300 newsletters 10 times a year.
“Monika saw a opportunity, took the initiative on her own, and created a savings and new process for town,” Bass wrote.
