Join the Public Service Recognition Week Celebration (Article)

Jason Briefel, legislative affairs assistant, Shaw Bransford & Roth, wrote an article called, "Join the Public Service Recognition Week Celebration, May 4-10" in Federal Communicators Network Blog.


Celebrated the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is time set aside to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county, and local government employees and the work they do for our country. PSRW is coordinated annually by the Public Employees Roundtable (PER) and its member organizations. This year PSRW will take place the week of May 4-10.

The theme for PSRW 2014 is Proud to Serve. Government employees and leaders alike are encouraged to take the opportunity to communicate the benefits and value of the work they do. Members of the public are also invited to share their appreciation for America's dedicated public servants.

To do so, PER is conducting a I "Heart" Public Service whiteboard photo campaign and a PSRW and throughout the year. Faces of Government campaign to collect testimonials from government employees and members of the public for sharing on social media during PER is also conducting a Thunderclap campaign with a goal of 500 participants, which will automatically send out a message thanking public servants at the start of PSRW on Sunday, May 4. To help PER spread the word and participate in these campaigns, like them on Facebook, follow on Instagram, and join the conversation on Twitter by tagging posts with #PSRW and/or #Proud2ServeUSA.
