Outstanding State Employees

Outstanding state employees

I was privileged to have several private conversations with managers in the Helena state bureaucracy. One told me that he had employees that were more dedicated than some he had as a manager in the private sector. I believe him. I saw excellence in employees during the legislative session. Hard work, enthusiasm, good attitude under pressure, long hours, no complaints. It was gratifying to see.

Surely, the range of employee motivation, efficiency and accuracy exists in state government as it does elsewhere. Lack of measurement systems precludes rewarding the best.
