Tom Fox, VP of Leadership & Innovation at the Partnership for Public Service, talks with Francis Rose about the finalists for the 2018 “Sammie” awards and the importance of recognizing federal workers.


Every Public Service Recognition Week, the Partnership for Public Service announces the finalists for the “Sammies.” The Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals are awarded to individuals who have demonstrated excellence in their federal government positions. This year, the 27 finalists range from NOAA scientists to FBI agents. “Despite that diversity, there are key themes that really come out of the winner stories. The first is that to a person, to a team, the humble hard-working fed really shines through each one of the stories from our Service to America medal finalists,” said Tom Fox, VP of Leadership & Innovation at the Partnership for Public Service. “I would say the second theme is focused on making sure they are equipped to build a team and motivate a team to achieve what sometimes seems like an almost impossible mission. And I think the third, and perhaps the most important one, is recognizing how the gears of government work, and sometimes don’t work.”
