Innovation at Jeffco
The Jefferson County vision is to provide innovative, efficient, equitable, and quality services to a thriving and safe community. We strive to achieve this vision by listening to community members, continuously improving our current processes, encouraging employee creativity, and adopting new solutions.
The Innovation Team, housed within the Business Innovation and Technology Department, partners with departments to evaluate and implement technologies that transform county services for the better. The team also champions initiatives related to citizen experience, data-driven decision-making, employee empowerment, and strategic collaboration.
Our employee-driven innovation programs increase employee engagement, cultivate future leaders, and create opportunities to pilot new business processes and technologies. The county offers an array of trainings, tools, and platforms for sharing ideas, redesigning processes, and improving services.
With our Innovation Internships program, Jefferson County cultivates a talent pool that is equipped with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to rapidly define problems, ideate, and prototype innovative solutions. We recruit local students who are curious, creative, and adaptable.
