Public Employee’s Day Date in the current year: June 23, 2018

Public Employee’s Day UN Public Service Day is observed on June 23 every year. Inspired by this official United Nations observance, the governments of several countries have decided to celebrate their national Public Employee’s Day on the same date.

These countries include Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan. Ukrainian Public Service Day was officially established on April 4, 2003 by President Leonid Kuchma. President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev inaugurated National Public Employees Day in 2006, and the next year a similar professional holiday was created by the government of Kyrgyzstan. Finally, Public Employee’s Day appeared in the professional holiday calendar of Kazakhstan in 2013 according to a decree signed by President Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Public service plays a very important role in the life of any democratic state. It is even associated with fundamental human rights such as the right to water. In modern democracies, private service is typically performed by employees who are hired by elected officials. As government agencies are not profit-oriented, civil servants are motivated very differently from people employed in the private sector and tend to make less in wages, but they have other intangible benefits such as working fewer hours and increased job security.

On the occasion of their professional holiday, public employees in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine are congratulated by their superiors and government officials. The most distinguished employees are rewarded for their hard work and accomplishments.
