What a week!
This year we took Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) to a new level. Each year, PSRW is our opportunity to thank Federal employees for all of the work they do for the American people. This year we did things just a little differently.
We went big on social media. On Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram we asked Federal employees to thank their colleagues, friends, and neighbors using the hashtag #FEDSpirit. We received so many creative, funny, and heartfelt thank you’s.
On Tuesday I was invited to throw out the first pitch at National’s Park as a part of Federal Employee Recognition Night. We invited five of the employees that were recognized for their #FEDSpirit to join me on the field for the first pitch. While it wasn’t the best night for our home team, it was a truly great night out with each other.
You don’t see that every day.
And right here in OPM we’ve been showing our spirit throughout the building and in our offices around the country. We’ve been taking pictures showing off our #FEDSpirit. We’ve shared food and ice cream. And we’ve taken the time to give our employees brown bags, webcasts, and other useful information. These kinds of activities didn’t just happen here. Every government agency honored their Federal employees in their own way.
It’s important to honor not only the work Federal employees do, but the
people who do it. The people who care for our veterans, manage federal
programs, and fight forest fires. The people who keep our skies safe,
our water clean, and our mail flowing. The people who discover new
medicines, protect our children, and represent us around the world.
They put in the extra effort to get the job done.
I wrote an Op-Ed this week to highlight their great work. Variations of it ran in the Washington Post and in other newspapers around the country.
I’ve been traveling the country for the past few months meeting with Federal employees from nearly every agency and hearing their concerns, their dreams, and their ideas. And I always say thank you.
I am getting the word out in every way I can. I want Federal employees to know just how much they matter.
I don’t believe we should thank our Federal workforce only once a year. All our Federal employees deserve thanks and recognition year round.
So join me. Help us keep it up. Take time to thank you colleagues, your friends, and your neighbors.
I am so honored to lead such a dedicated, talented and strong workforce.
Happy PSRW. Thank you for all you do each and every day.
