Service Awards

The Employee Service Awards Program serves as a way to show gratitude and appreciation to employees who have displayed years of dedication and loyalty to State service. We understand highlighting these achievements is important; therefore, we recognize employees who have showcased their commitment to our State. The Service Awards contract became effective in early September, with this year’s program offering a larger selection of awards, including both traditional and lifestyle items. There is also an improved award selection structure that gradually increases award value with service milestones. Employees with 30 years of service and above will receive a plaque in addition to an award item.
