GEM Employee Recognition Program

GEM Award logo

Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Employee Recognition Program
 
Collin County's GEM program is designed to recognize and reward county employees for excellence in service. This program allows elected officials and department heads to grant employees public recognition and an immediate monetary award for extra efforts.

Funding for GEM comes from revenues generated by the State Procurement Card Rebate Program, the Office Depot Office Supply Rebate Program and 65% of the vending machine concession contract.

Examples of efforts to be recognized:

  • One-time noteworthy achievements
  • Volunteering for an extra or emergency assignment while maintaining one's own workload
  • Using personal initiative and creativity to solve an unusual problem
  • Producing a work product of exceptionally high quality under tight deadlines

 
A GEM award net payment is about $250.
  
GEM nominees are approved or disapproved for an award by the employee's elected official or appointed department head. The program was approved and initiated by the Collin County Commissioners Court on November 1, 2010.
 
GEM award winners so far are listed below.

Congratulations to all GEM Award winners!
