Employee Appreciation Week

Employee Appreciation 2024

Employee Appreciation Week for the City of Southlake is a time to show gratitude and thanks to those who make Southlake what it is: Committed to Excellence, Innovative, a Team Environment, Accountable, and Dedicated to Integrity. For Southlake, Employee Appreciation is not just something we do, rather, something we are committed to and in which we believe whole-heartedly. We are world-class professionals serving a world-class community. Without the loyalty, commitment, and dedication of this workforce, Southlake would not be the Model City as it is regarded today.
