Prudential Productivity Award



Two teams have been recognized with the 2016 Prudential Productivity Award at a luncheon held at the Buena Vista Palace in Orlando on June 23, 2016. The Prudential Productivity Award is sponsored by Florida TaxWatch and is held to honor state employees who innovatively reduce costs and improve services for Florida taxpayers.


According to Florida TaxWatch President and CEO, Dominic Calabro, “State workers hardly get the praise and honor they deserve for a job well done, and this program ensures that the taxpayers are noticing their contributions, and are thankful for all that our public servants are doing to make Florida a great place to get a job, raise a family and start a business.”
