Fellow State Employees,
As 2013 draws to a close, I am writing to express my
sincere appreciation for your service to the people of Indiana over the past
Through the efforts of dedicated State Employees like
you, Hoosiers continue to receive quality service and support when interacting
with our state government. Indiana is strong and growing stronger due, in part,
to the commitment you exhibit every day in service to the public.
Because of your efficiency and commitment to fiscal
discipline, Indiana leads the way with a balanced budget, AAA credit rating and
a reputation for sound fiscal management.
While our present circumstances do not permit us to
increase base pay, because your service to Indiana has been exemplary, I have
authorized a bonus that you will receive once performance evaluations are
completed in January.
Employees who meet expectations will receive a $500
bonus, those who exceed expectations will receive $750, and those rated
outstanding will receive $1,000.
I hope this news will be an encouragement to you for a job well done in 2013.
Thank you for your service to the good people of Indiana.
It is the greatest privilege of my life to serve alongside men and women like
God bless you and your family with a memorable holiday
season and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
Governor Mike Pence
