April - June 2018
National Employee Appreciation Day was early last month. At that time, I circulated a note recognizing your efforts and dedication to the Water System and our customers. Your hard work often goes unnoticed by the public, but I, along with the other Water System managers, truly appreciate your service. You should be proud every day that you are part of a team that provides safe drinking water and keeps streams clean for the children, citizens, and businesses in Cobb. You are valued as an employee and as an individual.
In this edition of the Pipeline, I continue to encourage you to appreciate and take care of yourself. Build friendships with your co-workers and take pride in your job. You have chosen to be part of a profession that makes a difference every day. Whether you work at a plant, on a crew, assisting customers, keeping the money flowing, or supporting our operations in other ways, you are an integral part of our team and our operations.
Please take part in the Employee Appreciation Cookout for all Water System employees on Thursday, May 10th at the Operations Building. This event follows Water Professionals Appreciation Day earlier in the week. In conjunction with the resurrection of this old tradition at the Water System, a committee of your associates and peers has been diligently working on establishing an internal/Agency program to highlight and recognize your individual achievements. More details of this new Water System recognition will be shared in the coming months.
We look forward to plans to the return of the County-wide Customer Service award program as well. These recognition programs are just part of the ways we hope to acknowledge the importance of your commitment to this industry, Agency, and County. Thank you, we appreciate all that you do!
