Federal Workers’ Morale Is At Lowest Point In Years

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s yet another year of low morale and dwindling workplace satisfaction in government agencies. The annual “Best Places to Work” rankings, released Tuesday by the Partnership for Public Service, show that federal employees’ satisfaction and commitment are at their lowest point ever since the analysis began, in 2003. The government-wide employee engagement score is 57 out of 100, compared with the private sector’s score of 72 out of 100.

” There has been a failure of leadership,” says Max Stier, president and chief executive of the Partnership for Public Service. His organization compiles the rankings by analyzing data from the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey, which nearly 400 agencies and their subcomponents administered to their workforce this year.

  The gap between worker satisfaction in the private sector versus the public sector has nearly tripled since 2010. As morale in the former has ticked upward following the recession, morale in the latter has continued to slide downward.”
