Our employees say...

“I gratefully took advantage of the employee tuition reimbursement program for years. Having a nurse on site is so helpful and convenient to quick ask a question or have your blood pressure checked. It’s also heartening to know that if anything happens, such as extended time off for health concerns, your co-workers are able to donate some of their PTO (Paid Time Off) to you.”
Mary, Administration 

"I love that we have the opportunity for different wellness activities such as yoga, flu shots, access to an Occupational Health Nurse, and wellness challenges/programs."

 

Tracy, Administration 
“I love that management at Scott County is open to innovation and creativity on my job to maximize results.  Training opportunities are not only offered at Scott County, but they are encouraged to help you reach your maximum potential on your job which is encouraging because so many jobs say that there is no time for that, but Scott County says, ‘How can you afford not to?’”
Shawn, Health and Human Services 
“The events organized by Scott County Employees Association are terrific and a great way to meet other employees.  The flu clinic, the Relay for Life event, the Employee Handmade Market and Future Leaders of Scott County are all awesome ideas!  I love that we do 'Adopt a Family' and donate to great organizations to help those in need.  It feels great to pay it forward with other dedicated Scott County employees!”
