Above and Beyond
The Above and Beyond program is a rewards and recognition program for the Town of Westerly. Any employee may nominate any other Town employee or work team. Employees who demonstrate exceptional dedication in upholding the Town's values and exhibiting behavior and demonstrating they are going above and beyond.
Qualities that might identify an employee for nomination include such factors as:
- Promoting the image of the department or Town through continual extension of service, courtesy to residents, employees and the public.
- Exhibiting leadership and maintaining grace under pressure/deadlines/crisis situations.
- Initiating/recommending innovative ideas which are implemented and result in better service or efficiency.
All nominations will be copied to the employee's Department Head.
Every month, employees will be recognized and will receive a commemorative certificate and cash award. In addition, awardees will be officially honored by Town Council at a regularly scheduled council meeting.
