OPM Director Kay Coles James presented the 2001 OPM Director's PILLAR Awards on August 28th at OPM's Strategic Compensation Conference in Alexandria, VA. The OPM Director's PILLAR Award is an honorary award established in 2000 to recognize and publicize effective employee performance management programs, processes, and practices that support alignment of employee performance management practices with organizational strategic goals as well as results-oriented and customer-focused performance. The name of the award stands for Performance, Incentives, and Leadership Linked to Achieve Results. The pillar represents effective performance management because it is the foundation that supports a structure, just as performance management is the foundation that supports good management.
OPM solicited nominations for the award in a March 29 memorandum for heads of executive departments and agencies. We received 40 nominations from 18 agencies. A panel of human resources experts reviewed the nominations and made recommendations to Director James, who made the final selections.
DCM has achieved excellent organizational results in a number of areas with accomplishment of some goals at record levels. Their organizational success has been reflected in their receipt of the Secretary's Excellence of Service Award.
We want to acknowledge all the organizations throughout Government who took the time to nominate a performance management practice that contributes to achieving their mission and strategic goals.
