Cayman Islands Deputy Governor Franz Manderson has said he is committed to building a new sense of morale throughout the territory’s civil service. He said he believes the new Deputy Governor’s Awards will help.
“The Deputy Governor’s Awards are designed to recognise the excellent work performed by civil servants in the area of customer service, and towards reaching the goals of their respective departments,” Mr. Manderson said.
On Tuesday, 27 August, all civil servants were informed of the new programme. The awards highlight the outstanding efforts of civil servants across core government, so that both the people and their actions may inspire their peers.
The awards set high standards, which are expected from all Cayman Islands civil servants. The accolades are an internal rewards scheme for civil servants, who will be participating within their departments on a monthly basis.
“Every day civil servants go about exceeding the expectations of their customers, and it is important that such excellence is recognised,” Mr. Manderson said. “I look forward to the launch of this exciting new programme and would like to take this opportunity to encourage all of my fellow civil servants to continue to strive for excellence in service.”
