HARRISBURG – Anglers and boaters who have received outstanding service from Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) employees can now share that experience with the agency’s leadership through a new Web page called “Praise an Employee.”
“One of my goals as executive director has been to engage the public more and give them the opportunity to interact with staff and Commissioners,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “One way we’ve accomplished this is through the public information meetings held in conjunction with our quarterly Commission meetings. These have been well attended and we are planning to host another one on January 24 which will feature several professional ice fishermen from the North East Ice Tour.
“Another way we are connecting with the public is through The Fishing Hole, which provides the public and staff the opportunity to ask us questions via email. But the public also should have a means to let us know when they have received excellent service from our employees,” Arway added. “Now they can do that through The Fishing Hole and a new page called Praise an Employee.”
The new Web page gives the public an easy and convenient way to tell Commission leaders about exceptional service they have received. Incoming public comments will go first to the PFBC Human Resources Division and then to the executive director.
“After reviewing comments, I will share each one with the appropriate bureau director and the respective employee so that the employee receives the recognition he or she deserves,” said Arway.
The mission of the Fish and Boat Commission is to protect, conserve, and enhance the Commonwealth’s aquatic resources and provide fishing and boating opportunities. For more information about fishing and boating in Pennsylvania, please visit our website at www.fishandboat.com.
