Employee Recognition


DHHS - YOU Make a DifferenceHelping people live better lives… As a whole, the work we do at DHHS is very fulfilling. And, it’s nice to hear what a difference we make when we do a good job.

Employee recognition is good for workplace motivation and creates positive morale.
It may seem simplistic, but people who feel recognized and 'cared about' produce more and better work. That’s why it’s important to make employee recognition a priority in our workplace culture.
