Our Corporate Employee Recognition Program recognizes the commitment and achievements of City employees. Here are some ways that the City of Edmonton recognizes our employees:
Employees achieving major educational milestones (certificate programs, diplomas, degrees, industry or professional designations) will be recognized at the discretion of their departments.
Employee Appreciation and Performance
Departments will continue to recognize and celebrate good work and accomplishments of their employees. Performance recognition occurs when an individual or group has successfully completed a noteworthy task or project and/or when the successful completion of a department project has a corporate-wide impact.
City employees bring diverse skills, talents and experiences to their work and are recognized for it. The City of Edmonton values and recognizes the contributions of City staff in making Edmonton a great place to live, work and play. To further acknowledge these important contributions, the City offers a number of employee awards to highlight the exceptional service of City staff.
City Manager’s Awards
The City Manager's Occupational Health and Safety Award is presented to individuals and work groups who are nominated by their peers for making a significant contribution to the health and safety program in their area.
Environmental Excellence Award
The Charles Labatiuk Award for Environmental Excellence recognizes the many environmental champions of our corporation in three areas; environmental leadership, environmental innovation and continual environmental improvement.
Long Service Recognition
Long Service Recognition begins at 10 years of service and continues every 5 subsequent years. Employees may choose from a selection of gifts, the value of each gift complements the length of service. In addition, employees achieving major service milestones of 25, 30, 35 and 40 years will receive a certificate of appreciation signed by the Mayor and City Manager.
Occupational Health and Safety Awards
Corporate recognition will be given to individuals or work groups who continue to contribute in a positive way to the City’s occupational health and safety efforts.
