Work Place of Excellence
A PREFERRED PLACE TO WORK
At the Commission, we make it our business to be recognized as the best in our services and as anemployer. As a service provider, the Commission has been recognized as a national leader in recreation, park, and planning functions. We believe that has a lot to do with our ability to understand and meet the needs of well-informed and diverse communities throughout Montgomery and Prince George's Counties.
Having an outstanding workforce that reflects the community we serve is the key to being successful. The Commission recruits highly skilled candidates with strong educational and life experiences as well as diverse talents, creativity, and a clear understanding of our mission to serve the community.
Because we believe that employees are our most valuable resource, the Commission has been a leader in implementing initiatives that allow individuals to grow, both professionally and personally. Our commitment to equal employment opportunity, celebration of employee diversity, and remarkable work/life programs has earned us recognition as a "Workplace of Excellence".
We invite employees and candidates for employment to learn more about the Commission and our strong commitment to being a preferred place to work.
Our Work/Life Program is designed to recognize the whole employee, both at work and outside work. The Commission is proud to be one of the first employers in the state to offer benefits, which allow employees to better balance career and personal goals/responsibilities. Many of our Work/Life components were designed with input from employees to ensure that they best meet the needs of the workforce. The Work/Life programs have been tremendously popular in-house and garnered the attention of other agencies, which have used our Program as models.
