San Joaquin County Employee Service Award Program

The San Joaquin County Human Resources Division is pleased to announce significant revisions to the County’s Employee Service Award program. Beginning with 2006-07 recipients, employees who have 20, 25, 30, 35 or 40 years of full-time service with the County will receive their choice of an historical print in addition to a County service pin.

These prints are high-quality reproductions of 19th and 20th century originals from the archives of the San Joaquin County Historical Society and Museum. The choice of images includes historical figures and architecture, agricultural scenes, and nature shots. Prints are professionally framed in a variety of sizes that are available to recipients based on years of service:

Table of years of service to print size
Years of Service Print Size Framed Size
35, 40, or more 16"x20" or smaller 20"x24" or smaller
30 10"x14" or smaller 14"x18" or smaller
25 8"x10" or smaller 11"x14" or smaller
20 5"x7" 8"x10'

Approximately three months prior to each service award ceremony, Human Resources will provide a list of employees eligible to receive an award to their home departments. Employees will notify Human Resources of their selection and an order for the framed print will be placed. The employee will receive their award at a scheduled meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
