My Well-Being - Total Rewards Philosophy

Total Rewards Logo

Scott County is an employer of choice, supporting, encouraging, and engaging employees through focused employee investments and workplace programs and offerings that promote and foster individual and organizational well-being. The net result of this philosophy is public service excellence.

What does that mean? It’s about the bigger picture of what is involved in the making of a great workplace. We understand that pay and benefits are some of the most important things to employees and we also know that there is more to job satisfaction and an employee’s life.

  • Physical Health 
  • Belonging to a Social Workplace 
  • Work Life Balance
  • Financial Security
