The National Association of State Personnel Executives has given the Pennsylvania Office of Administration national awards in all three categories for leadership, innovation and communication in state human resource management in its annual awards program.
According to the governor’s office, Pennsylvania is the first state to have swept all award categories in one year.
The Office of Administration earned the Eugene H. Rooney Jr. Leadership and Innovative Program Awards, as well as the Eva N. Santos Communications Award.
“We are proud to be a leader among states in the management of human resources,” Gov. Tom Corbett said.
Established in memory of a former NASPE president, the Rooney Awards recognize individuals who exemplify the character, qualities and influence that Rooney had on state personnel administration, and innovative state human resource management practices that ensure access and equity while enhancing productivity and service delivery.
