Employment

We here at the Town of Benson are happy to provide an atmosphere where everyone feels like they are an integral part of our team. We strive to provide a work environment that excels in productivity, organization, and being as stress free as possible.

The Principles for our staff are the same as the Council's.

  • Thorough in our decision making, taking the time to evaluate alternatives and allocate adequate time for all to understand and be able to make informed decisions.
  • Fair and consistent in applying our processes and decisions to matters before us, no matter what the issue or who it affects
  • Respectful of others and their needs
  • Transparent so that it's apparent why and how decisions are made and that they are in accordance with these principles.
  • Open-minded and inclusive, and willing to change our view points based on facts and others' perspectives/reasoning.
  • Progressive as we address issues to make Benson better. This includes seeking a long-term view, being willing to make honest assessments of our positives and negatives, and taking a risk if our current approaches are not working.
