The purpose of Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is to show appreciation to public employees and to showcase the services that public employees provide. PSRW is celebrated nationally during the first full week in May each year. During PSRW, Vermont departments host a variety of recognition events and activities.
The highlight of Vermont's celebration is a ceremony to honor outstanding state employees and teams. This year's event, including a luncheon and awards ceremony, was held Monday, May 2, 2016. Governor Peter Shumlin, Secretary of Administration Justin Johnson and Department of Human Resources Commissioner Maribeth Spellman gave opening remarks and congratulations to all honorees and presented award certificates to Outstanding Employees and Teams.
