The so-called “thunderclap” campaign reached more than 3.5 million people, according to the Partnership for Public Service, which, organized the online effort.
Below is a list of the remaining activities for Recognition Week 2014:
* The Washington Nationals will honor federal employees with discounted tickets for the Nats’ 7:30 home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
* Finalists for the 13th annual Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Awards will meet for a breakfast on Capitol Hill. The winners will be announced in September.
The awards, known as “Sammies,” are among the highest honors for federal civilian employees. The categories for recognition range from federal employee of the year to management excellence.
* Cabinet secretaries from the departments of Homeland Security and Labor and Commerce, along with the head of the Office of Personnel Management, will hold a town hall to discuss government service at the Partnership for Public Service headquarters in Washington.
The Public Employees Roundtable, which created Recognition Week 29 years ago, hasn’t scheduled events for Monday, Wednesday or Friday, but the group issued a guide to help employers and the general public show their appreciation.
Leaders in Washington have already found a few ways to show their support outside the calendar of events. The Senate, for instance, passed a resolution last month honoring federal, state and local government employees for “dedication and continued service to the United States.”
Also, all the Cabinet secretaries have signed a letter of support to federal workers, acknowledging “all the men and women who dedicate their careers — and sometimes their lives — to keep others safe and provide the common needs of our society.”
