State of the Industry: The government sector is defined by a culture of stability, where change is rarely initiated and embraced. When change does occur, however, resistance from long-time employees can be detrimental to the efficiency of a department or an entire agency. Long-term employees are also at risk of becoming uninspired and disengaged because of tremendous red tape and repetitive activities. The typical government agency is perpetually trying to accomplish as much as possible with a small allotment of money and resources. With limited budgets, agencies cannot afford to lose any money on bad hires, turnover costs , or lost productivity. Government agencies are facing a retirement wave that is going to rapidly deplete institutional knowledge. They cannot afford to lose valued employees, as the departing employee’s workload is usually transferred to the remaining workers, spiraling frustration even further.
