BC Public Service Employees Celebrated For Outstanding Achievements

Darpan News Desk, 27 Nov, 2019

    The 15th annual Premier’s Innovation and Excellence Awards honoured BC Public Service employees for their exceptional work making life better for British Columbians.


    This work includes projects to advance reconciliation, improve emergency response and revitalize B.C.’s environmental assessment process.


    “Public service employees make life better for British Columbians every day,” said Premier John Horgan. “It is through their dedication and leadership that government is making life more affordable, delivering quality services, implementing a new climate action plan and building a strong, sustainable economy for all British Columbians.”


    The Premier’s Awards recognize public service employees for applying new and innovative approaches in seven categories: Emerging Leader, Evidence-Based Design, Innovation, Leadership, Legacy, Organizational Excellence and Partnership.


    “It’s thanks to our nominees, and countless others in the public service, that British Columbia shines here at home and on the national stage,” said Carole James, Minister of Finance. “Every day British Columbians rely on the services provided by public servants.


    Whether it’s by delivering front-line programs, strengthening environmental protections or bringing about generational policy shifts to implement the principles of reconciliation, I am incredibly grateful to you for your innovative work serving the people in our province.”


    The awards celebrate work at both the regional and provincial level. Regional awards recognize projects and people that impact a specific region, while the provincial awards honour work that impacts people and communities throughout British Columbia. A panel of independent adjudicators and judges determine the finalists and winners of the Premier’s Awards.
