Familiar with it? You know, the time set aside each year to honor the men and women who serve the US as federal, state and local government employees. I’m talking about Public Service Recognition Week which is celebrated the first Monday through Sunday in May. If you’re not so familiar with it, Public Service Recognition week not only recognizes what employees do on the job, but educates the public about your Department.
I’m curious to know what sort of events take place at your workplace to honor your employees, as well as any promotions, advertising, or events you provide to the public to spread the word about what your Department or Agency does.
I’ve been on the official website, and they don’t yet have their 2009 materials posted yet. Which leads me to another question: Due to our current economy, how might your 2009 Public Service Recognition Week events and promotions be affected or scaled down?
Nevertheless, keep the week on your calendar — it’s May 4–10, 2009!
