Last year, Cook County held its first Frontline award competition. Over 50 new ideas on ways to improve Cook County were submitted by County employees. Many of these ideas were implemented in the 2012 budget. County employees proposed innovative ideas that led to new programs. Over a dozen initiatives were implemented, including programs to encourage employees to live healthier and to green County buildings, saving the County over $2 million.
This year, President Preckwinkle is asking you for your help again. Frontline employees are the closest to the action—they interact with residents and know what it takes to make improvements in County government. The County needs your ideas for the 2013 budget.
Please submit your ideas to be incorporated in our upcoming budget that may save money, generate revenue, improve services or create efficiencies. To enter, click on the “Application” tab above, or pick up an entry form in the President’s Office on the 5th floor of the County Building.
A panel of experts will review the ideas, and ultimately, residents will vote on finalists. The winner will be recognized at a County Board meeting, and will be treated to lunch by President Preckwinkle.
The award is open to all County employees. Individuals, departments, bureaus, or teams can submit their ideas at this website, or drop off their applications in the President’s Office on the 5th floor of the County Building.
