About Public Service Recognition Week

Celebrated the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is organized by the Public Employees Roundtable (PER) and its member organizations to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. This year, PSRW will take place May 1-7, 2016. The theme for PSRW 2016 is “Honoring Our Public Servants. Connecting Citizens with Their Government.”

Public servants do amazing things across our great nation, around the world, and in your hometown and community. Through PSRW, we showcase their accomplishments and recognize the significant challenges they take on each and every day.
