With Their Actions, City Employees Put Their Best Foot Forward
DurhamFirst STARs are recognized each month for demonstrating the city's 7 values. City employees or citizens can nominate employees online, or print and mail a form (PDF), when they see them (individuals or teams) demonstrating the city's values in action. A selection committee, composed of former award winners, selects the month's winners from all the nominations.
DurhamFirst is city government's program aimed at producing a 21st Century high-performing organization, one that is responsive to citizen and employee needs. Along with other internal initiatives, the program provides training and developmental opportunities to help find and nurture tomorrow's city leaders.
