Thank You Partner Program

Facilities and Property Maintenance implemented a recognition program called "THANK YOU PARTNER" for all fulltime employees. This program promotes and recognizes employee contributions that go above and beyond the job description of their responsibilities. The employee recognition program will be a continuous monthly and yearly program for recognizing employees’ best efforts that links to FPM’s Mission Statement "To be the premier customer service organization, dedicated to the people we serve, hardworking to ensure we succeed as good stewards of Harris County".

A special breakfast presentation will be held to announce and award the Employee of the Year. The winning recipient will receive a coveted FPM Star as Employee of the Year along with a framed certificate, a personalized letter of gratitude and email and website recognition.

Thank You Partner Card Finale: 
At the finale all employees who have received Thank you Partner Cards throughout the year will have the opportunity to be eligible for additional FPM recognition. The more cards awarded the better your chances, FPM wants to recognize and show our appreciation for a job well done thorough out the year. This will culminate the program for the year.
