Hot Off the Press…The Research Is In: How to Keep Public Sector Employees Connected and Committed

October 16
Duration: 1 hour

In the wake of the Great Recession, many have asked how increased workloads and decreasing budgets may be affecting the engagement and satisfaction of over 19 million employees within the state, local and education markets. 

To answer this question, the GOVERNING Institute conducted a broad based study of more than 2,000 state and local government employees across all verticals.  This study provides a benchmark of engagement as well as an understanding of what motivates public sector employees to come to work each day. 

Join us for this webinar to preview the key findings from this broad based study:

  • Why only 58% of public sector employees are fully engaged in their jobs
  • What are the key drivers of engagement that are unique to the public sector
  • What are the significant opportunities to improve engagement
  • What are the threats to employee engagement
  • What are the best message strategies for recruitment and retention
