DGS has been recognized for excellence in Personnel Management by Facility Maintenance Decisions in their 2018 Achievement Awards. This is the result of Ready, Set, Hire a hiring event which we co-hosted with Recreation and Parks in April 2018.
The award focuses on the contributions made by a government agency’s maintenance and engineering departments that positively affected the organization as a whole. This hiring event allowed DGS to fill positions within our Facilities Maintenance divisions that had been historically difficult to fill. Some of these positions were specialized in a specific trade and required a unique approach to attract the right candidates. Using an innovative and community oriented approach: word of mouth from our staff members, a strong branding online, placing flyers and posters inside stores and rec centers. We saw an incredible turn out for DGS positions, the day of the event.
It is very exciting to have received this award and is a testament to the work and dedication of the staff involved and the innovative recruiting measures taken to ensure the highest quality work continues to be done for our partner agencies and the citizens of Baltimore.
