Prioritize the government employee experience
One in three workers are considering leaving their local government jobs. Despite this startling trend, local governments have been slow to respond. The National Employee Survey by Polco gives you the insights you need to make the right changes, retain and attract top talent, and create a workplace environment that everyone will appreciate.
The rise of remote work, people retiring later, and fewer young people interested in government jobs have presented new challenges in the public sector. Yet, local governments have lagged behind in meeting new work-life expectations. This has led to more turnover and more vacancies.
