I started working at the City of Littleton more than ten years ago as receptionist/Omnibus dispatcher. I thought it might be a stepping stone to something else, but a decade later I can’t imagine working anywhere else. I am now the Transportation Coordinator and am proud to be a part of providing transportation services to our qualifying citizens. I work with an amazing group of people who I’m happy to call friends. I have found what I was meant to do and I love it!
One of the reasons Littleton is a great place to work is it allows employees to use individual and professional judgment in carrying out the duties of their job, without excessive supervisor restraints.

There are many reasons why I’ve enjoyed my career with the city. One of the most important to me is the sense of “family” that is nurtured here. The city supports its employees in so many ways, the most significant of which is how we help each other. I can’t count the number of times that the administration and fellow employees have supported one another in times of illness or distress. The City has sponsored numerous fundraisers, blood drives, memorials and other forms of assistance for its employees in need. It’s the City’s caring and compassionate attitude towards its employees that makes the City of Littleton a great place to work.
I have been working for the City of Littleton for since 2000. When I moved to the USA from Ukraine, Littleton became my home and Bemis Public Library became my first place where I got a job. Everything was new to me. I was delighted to know benefits are prorated even for part-time workers. The library is an exciting and stimulating place to work. As an employee at the library, I never seem to be asked the same question twice, and I find this to be stimulating and challenging. My coworkers are collaborative and enjoyable to work with; and, I feel my position and work is appreciated. The work atmosphere is so positive at the Library that it makes me want to do more.
I have been working in the graphic design and printing industry for almost 18 years, 4 of which have been with the City of Littleton. Running the print shop at the City of Littleton has been overwhelmingly the best job I have ever had. I enjoy the work and feel that the work I do helps the city run more efficiently. My coworkers, an interesting and diverse group of professionals, are truly a great group of people to work with. Our benefits are awesome too.
The City of Littleton’s work environment fosters personal growth through education, recognition, guidance and support. Employees are given the opportunity to use their strengths and talents to accomplish their job successfully, as well as the opportunity to take on new challenges. Employees know what is expected of them and are provided the necessary tools to be inspired. Supervisors and employees work side by side to fulfill the mission and goals of the City of Littleton.

In the Information Technology Services (I.S.) world, one of the greatest challenges is attracting and retaining quality I.S. staff members. The three areas in which any organization must focus when it comes to attracting and retaining quality I.S. staff members are: competitive salaries, ongoing professional development opportunities, and a balance between work and family life. The City of Littleton does a good job of addressing these three areas. The City’s I.S. employees can take advantage of a flexible work schedule policy that includes a option for a flexible start and stop time each day, and an option to have flex-time-off every two weeks. The goal of the flexible work schedule is to allow I.S. employees to balance their work and family life. These policies certainly help the City of Littleton to attract and retain quality I.S. staff members.
One thing that really strikes me about City of Littleton employees is the high percentage of staff who have been at their jobs for 10, 15, 20 years, or more. To me, this is indicative of a workforce that finds their jobs to be satisfying and challenging. It was very apparent when I started at the city that for most staff this is not just a job, it is their career. And when you've worked with people for a very long time, they become less like co-workers and more like family.
