The county’s core value that resonates most with the work I do is “doing it well” as my job involves keying employees’ information, benefits and pay, explaining benefits, cost, and FMLA/STD procedures. By “doing it well,” it is my responsibility to key the data information effectively and accurately and providing good customer service to our county employees and/or citizens.
