What Effective Employee Engagement Looks Like in Local Governments
Is working for government really as bad as they say?
Absenteeism and general disengagement have long been associated with civil servants at all levels of public service.
Is public servant indifference real? Or Rumor?
Studies including TalentMap’s own research, suggest low engagement rates among public servants can be attributed to a litany of complex and multifaceted factors.
Widely held notions that local government workers are underworked and overpaid for example, undermine employee morale. Poor morale translates to poor employee engagement.
The storytelling that comes from public service employee surveys highlight areas with the greatest impact on engagement and point to potential areas for improvement.
During the webinar, David Ang, VP of Engagement and Consulting at TalentMap, answers the following frequently asked questions and more:
- How can you attract and retain Millennials and GenZers into roles and responsibilities their predecessors stuck with for their entire work life?
- Is low turnover a reason to celebrate or a cause for concern?
- What are signs of a troubled public service workforce?
- What are some of the common root causes that slow or stop public servants from becoming highly engaged employees?
- What strategies can you put to work to lift morale and work around barriers?
