Public Service Recognition Week (May 6-12, 2018) has always been an exciting week for those working in or around the public sector. It’s one designated week where we can all celebrate and honor the men and women across the country, at all levels of government, for the work they do every day.
We invite you to celebrate PSRW with us this year! We compiled a list of programs you can participate in this week to honor and recognize the public servants in your life, but there’s no reason to limit yourself to just one program!
Send a Free e-Card!
The connections and relationships you make within the government community can help shape the work you do and even advance your career. Which is why we wanted to help facilitate peer-to-peer acknowledgment during PSRW.
Check out these specially designed eCards and send to a fellow govie (or govies!) who you think is deserving of some recognition this week.
