Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) kicks-off on May 1st. It’s a time for agencies to honor employees for their hard work and dedication. Agencies nationwide will be hosting events that include learning forums, award ceremonies, and town halls to celebrate government employees and raise awareness for the services they offer to the American people.
The official PSRW website offers several ways to honor and celebrate your local public servant.
- Send a message to public servants you know.
- Organize an event in your community.
- Encourage local radio stations to play Public Service Announcements to honor federal employees
In addition to the many events that are planned, individual agency managers can take on a significant role in recognizing the value of their employees by giving them a one minute praising. Praising is the most powerful activity a manager can do. It focuses on reinforcing behavior that increases an employee’s confidence and motivation and moves them closer to their goals. A one minute praising is so easy to do. Simply look around your agency and “catch people doing something right” and immediately give them a praising that is specific and that states your feelings.
How is your agency supporting Public Service Recognition Week?
