Jefferson County Recognized for Innovation in Local Government 

Jefferson County received an award for Outstanding Achievement in Local Government Innovation from the Alliance for Innovation (AFI). The county was honored during AFI’s annual Transforming Local Government (TLG) conference, this year held virtually, for the Getting from How? To Wow! | Building a Culture of Innovation program and the impact it has made on our community. 

The program used a multi-faceted approach to encourage a culture of innovation at Jefferson County. It built a support system to launch the creative ideas of Jeffco staff, including training, recognition programs, collaboration with CU Denver on a human-centered design project approach and other collaborative opportunities. Successes from the program, to date, include a 20 percent increase in employees’ beliefs that Jeffco is an innovative place to work, 130 staff trained, $1.3 million in annual savings, and 14 innovation projects.

AFI received more than 100 nominations for the Innovation Awards and Jeffco’s innovation program was one of eleven projects selected for demonstrating positive community and organizational impacts, quantum leaps in creativity, and tangible results toward building antifragile communities.

Jeffco Receives Excellence Award from CGAIT

The county received an excellence award from the Colorado Government Association of Information Technology (CGAIT) for providing exceptional customer service for equipping and empowering employees to work remotely. The county was catapulted into working remotely and providing our services virtually. Jeffco's Business Innovation & Technology (BIT) department united to support this immense task. 

BIT needed to provide training, documentation and communications to support employees on the tools and services needed to work remotely. Jeffco's Chief Information Security Officer increased awareness about scams around the country. BIT staff established an unyielding dedication to serving our partners and the surrounding community. The team worked countless hours including long days and weekends to implement its tasks
