Public Service Recognition Week


PSRW logo with text stating Public Service Recognition Week 

Honoring Our Public Servants.

Connecting Citizens with Their Government.

May 7-13, 2023

Public Service Recognition Week is a time set aside to honor the individuals who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. It is a valuable morale booster and a pleasant distraction from intense work.

CalHR invites your department to participate in themed event days during Public Service Recognition Week and, if it is appropriate for your department, share photos of your events using the hashtags #PSRWCA and #CAServingCA.

If you have satellite offices or teleworking staff, be sure to establish a way to collect photos and share participation in advance. Recommended events are optional, not required or mandatory. Hybridize events that are in-person with a virtual participation option.
