Subject: Sacramento Workplace Excellence Leader (SWEL) Award
It gives me great pleasure to announce that last night, the Department of Motor Vehicles earned the prestigious SWEL Award, in the Large Government Organization category.
This award is a clear recognition of our employee focused commitment, as the DMV continues to emphasize career development and interpersonal improvement. The department continues to "drive change" through innovations in executive leadership, our award-winning program to hire and promote employees with disabilities and the fact that we have several active employee organizations celebrating the ethnic and cultural diversity of our workforce.
More than 100 companies and agencies were nominated by their employees for this unique recognition. I am honored that our department has been recognized as an innovative organization that empowers its employees and by doing so, improves its services to the public.
Again, congratulations to the entire DMV family.
