Assistant Town Clerk Scott Carle Receives Employee Recognition
First Selectman Matt Hoey announced today that the Town of Guilford Assistant Town Clerk Scott Carle has been named the first recipient of the Guilford Employee Recognition Award.
Hoey initiated this program and has encouraged all employees to nominate other employees who should be recognized for outstanding achievement and performance in their work.
The Employee Recognition Awards Committee reviewed multiple applications and selected Carle, who was nominated by his supervisor, Town Clerk Anna Dwyer.
According to Dwyer, Town Clerk Carle is one of the most courteous and helpful people she has ever met. In her nominating letter, she wrote, in part, “He never gets upset with difficult customers and always manages to inject a little humor in our day. He goes out of his way to help locate deeds or maps and to explain things to people who have no understanding of how the land record system works. Scott is one of the most reliable and dependable people I have ever worked with. When he has had to work alone and has no one to cover the lunch hour, he refuses to close the office because he is sympathetic to other title searchers and attorneys who might be inconvenienced. My decision to hire Scott as an Assistant Town Clerk was the best decision I have made since becoming Town Clerk over six years ago.”
Carle took the initiative to create and automate a number of forms, making it easier for the office as well as constituents to use. He also was able to increase staff accessibility by transferring map images to individual work stations, in addition to the public stations.
Carle received a framed Employee Recognition Award certificate as well as a gift card from First Selectman Hoey, in recognition of his achievement. It is expected that others will be recognized in similar fashion several times a year as further nominations are received.
