    Our Director Director's Blog

    Each year, during the first full week of May, our Nation comes together to celebrate the men and women who serve our country as Federal, state, county, and local government employees. For 34 years, we’ve taken this time to honor the people who work diligently to promote safety, security and quality of service for the American public. Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is a time to promote and share stories of excellence in public service with you, the Nation we serve.

    Every day a Federal employee is impacting your life in some way. Whether it’s telling you not to eat lettuce because of an E.coli outbreak, scanning your luggage at the airport, or preparing an exhibit at your favorite Smithsonian museum, it’s affecting your life in a positive manner.

    The U. S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is a particularly unique agency because not only do we serve the American public, but we also serve civil servants by providing services associated with healthcare, retirement, human capital management, emergency management, security and suitability vetting, and much more!

    I am proud of the work we do here at OPM, and of the employees who make it all possible. I invite you to take some time to thank a Federal employee today, and thank you for letting us be of service! Happy Public Service Recognition Week!
