Jethon Williams, Monroe County’s TV and Multimedia Manager in Information Technology, was named Monroe County’s 2019 Employee of the Second Quarter for his noteworthy performance that exceeds normal job expectations.
Williams was nominated for the award due to his assistance in the creation of time-saving on-boarding videos for new hire orientation.
“New employees can now get up to speed quickly, rather than having to wait until the next scheduled orientation,” said Bryan Cook, Director of Employee Services. “These videos will be readily available to hiring managers and will save time for the Employee Services Department and the County Attorney’s office.”
Williams created a green-screen room for the recording of the presentations, then produced and edited the videos and added graphics and closed captioning.
Williams just celebrated his tenth anniversary with the County and is also responsible for launching the County’s new web streaming and on-demand portal at www.monroecounty-fl.gov/mctv. He also completed retrofitting two of the three Board of County Commissioners chambers to broadcast in high definition.
“Jethon has a can-do attitude no matter what the task,” said Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi. “We are pleased he was nominated for this deserving title.”
Williams will receive recognition at an upcoming Board of County Commissioners monthly meeting. Other employees who received nominations for Employee of the Second Quarter for their outstanding service to the County were Lindsey Ballard, Nicole Petrick, Steve Sanders, Leonardo Cabrera, Teresa Dallao, Michelle Yzenas, and Michaela Manning.
