JFS employees won two of seven Hamilton County Employee of the Year awards handed out this year. They were both honored at today’s Board of County Commissioners meeting.
Jim Ashmore, our Performance Improvement section chief, won the county’s Leadership Award. Jim is a conscientious employee who makes sure we always put our customers first. He serves as an in-house advocate; always pushing us to make changes that will benefit the citizens of Hamilton County. He has also built relationships throughout the community that help us stay in touch with the needs of providers and the people we serve.
Mike Boehmer, a specialist in our Communications group, won the Innovation Award. He continues to forge new paths of communication with the public and the people we serve. Mike’s work in social media has been lauded throughout the community and has resulted in cost-effective ways for us to stay in touch with local residents. When you receive our e-newsletter, listen to a podcast or follow us on Facebook and Twitter — that is Mike’s doing.
They are both fine representatives of all the wonderful people we have working here. It has been a tough year at JFS and I could not be prouder of our employees who continue to work hard and do what is best for this community. Congrats Mike and Jim!
