DHHS Employee of the Year

October is Nebraska State Employee Recognition Month

Lincoln—Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center-Geneva (YRTC-G) employee, Diane Hill, is being recognized as one of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) employees of the year.

October is Nebraska State Employee Recognition Month. State agencies are allowed to select one employee and one supervisor of the year for every 500 people employed by the agency.

“These employees and supervisors are an inspiration to all of us and I want to thank them for their hard work and dedication,” said Courtney Phillips, DHHS CEO. “It is a true honor to be nominated by your peers for this recognition.”

Hill was nominated by her coworkers who said she is dependable, hardworking and “an employee who can be counted on”. They also noted that she is very knowledge and is someone other coworkers turn to when they have questions.  

Hill will be honored along with the rest of DHHS’ employees and supervisors of the year on Thursday, October 29 with a reception with Gov. Pete Ricketts at the Capitol Rotunda, a reception at the Governor’s Residence and a DHHS recognition at the Cornhusker Hotel.

YRTC-G is part of DHHS’ Division of Children and Families.
