What is State Employee Recognition Week (SERW)?
State Employee Recognition Week [SERW] is a time set aside to better inform people about the wide variety of services provided by state employees. It is a time to show appreciation to the employees who ensure that our government is the best in the world.
State Employee Recognition Week is an occasion to recognize every agency’s involvement in the local community – the innovative programs that enhance the quality of life, and all successful efforts to improve customer service for Missouri citizens.
It is also a time to notice the outstanding state employees we work with every day – people who have chosen to make a career of public service.
Even when times are tight it is still important to show appreciation to employees. In fact, it is more important than ever. Be sure to take the time to tell employees who continue the important work of their agency that their dedication and sacrifices are noticed and appreciated.
Each manager, supervisor and employee – whether behind the scene, or out in front – is the face that someone turns to for help and assistance every day. State Employee Recognition Week reminds us of the dedication it takes to fulfill each agency’s mission, and the pride employees take in the work they do.
To find out how each state agency recognized their state employees during SERW contact the state agency coordinator.
The capstone for SERW is the annual State Employee Recognition Day (SERD) event held on the south lawn of the Capitol on Thursday, June 9, 2016 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Numerous state offices and local businesses will have displays and information available to the public highlighting their accomplishments and services.
