Pittsboro, NC - At the June 6 meeting of the Chatham County commissioners, Carolyn Miller, Human Resources Director, explained that this is the third year that the Employee of the Year has been awarded. She stated that the Personnel Committee, made up of different departments, is responsible for selecting an employee(s) of the month and from those who are selected as employee of the month, the employee of the year is selected. The committee met in May to select the employee of the year. The Fiscal Year 2010-2011 Employee of the Year is Hope Tally of the Finance Office. Hope has been with Chatham County for nearly ten years.

Ms. Miller provided an excerpt from Ms. Tally‘s nomination form as follows:

Reason for Nomination: This year, and actually the past two years, Hope has been a great help to me during budget time. She has done this with a great attitude and not with an attitude of "let‘s get this over with."

In what way does this employee demonstrate Employee of the Month criteria?

Hope has a great attitude not only toward her job and job duties, but toward her co-workers as well. She has always been willing to help no matter how small or big the request has been. She has taken the time to research or tell me how to get the information that I am looking for. I know that there are times she is very busy but has been willing to stop and help me with the task that I am doing. I believe that Hope is committed to not only achieving high standards for the Finance Department, but for everyone associated with Chatham County.

Chairman Brian Bock congratulated Ms. Tally.

Ms. Tally stated this was truly an honor, noting she could not do her job without the wonderful co-workers she worked with, and in her mind this award was just as much for them as it was for her.
