About Us

Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is hosted annually by the Public Employees Roundtable and its member organizations.

Public Employees Roundtable

For more than 30 years, the Public Employees Roundtable (PER) has served as a non-partisan coalition of good government organizations representing civil servants and retirees from all levels and throughout the country.

PER's mission is to:

  • Promote government employment and careers
  • Educate Americans about the value of public servants and the services they provide
  • Recognize excellence in public service and promote the spirit of public service

 

With its member organizations and congressional support, PER started Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) in 1985 to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county, and local government employees. Since that time the first week of May has been officially designated by Congress as PSRW, and PER continues to lead efforts to show appreciation to our nation’s talented and dedicate public servants.
