Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) (May 7 - 13) is one of our favorite times of the year here at GovLoop. PSRW is all about acknowledging and appreciating the work you do in the public sector.
We think it’s important to take some dedicated time to thank the GovLoop community for your work and we wanted to invite you to celebrate by participating in programs developed specifically for PSRW:
Send a Friendly eCard
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.
Be inspired by your fellow public servants, grow your network and ask questions in our daily Twitter chats from 2-3pm ET. Make sure to follow @GovLoop, @YGLNational, and @RPublicService and use #PSRWChat to join the conversation!
