Employee Recognition

The City of Newport News recognizes and honors employees in a variety of different ways when employees reach service milestones and exhibit positive performance behaviors. We promote the philosophy that employees are valuable assets that are motivated through recognition and rewards. As a result, the City has implemented several recognition programs to reward employee contributions.

The Employee Recognition program is broken down into three areas: Service Awards, Employee Awards, and the Graduation & Recognition Ceremony. Select the links on the left to find out more information about the awards and programs offered.
