Employee Recognition

The City of Zephyrhills values the hard work and dedication of every employee and continues to develop our ZStar Employee Recognition program. The purpose of the ZStar program is to provide a process for nominating and selecting employees who exemplify our core values and have made significant contributions to the mission of the City. 

City employees are the backbone of our community. They work tirelessly every day to keep our City working smoothly, from maintaining our roads and parks to ensuring that our utilities are functioning properly. While their work may often go unnoticed or unappreciated, it is important to take a moment to recognize their contributions and express gratitude for their efforts. 

One way to show appreciation for City employees is to simply say thank you when you encounter them in your day-to-day life. Whether it is a sanitation worker collecting your trash or a police officer keeping your neighborhood safe, a kind word and a smile can go a long way in brightening their day and showing their work is valued. Another powerful way to show appreciation is by filling out our ZStar Employee Recognition form to recognize them. 

Recognitions will be submitted to Human Resources on the ZStar form or via e-mail at zstarz@ci.zephyrhills.fl.us. They may be submitted by employees and citizens. Self-nominations are not permitted.
