The City of Creedmoor's management staff encourages employees to pursue training and certification to enhance their skills and qualifications. Often the training and certifications are required for compliance with federal, state, or other regulations; however just as often employees pursue additional training to enable them to better serve the citizens of Creedmoor. In addition, City Management recognizes employees and teams that strive to raise the standard of professionalism for their respective departments, and ultimately the entire City of Creedmoor staff.
With the realization that this often calls for sacrifice above and beyond the job requirements, the Mayor and Board of Commissioners recognize employees for their efforts during their public meetings. City management and elected officials applaud these employees for their dedication and commitment to professional and personal development.
