Building a Culture of Employee Engagement in State Government

November 15, 2016 | USA

These are tough times for the public sector. Across the nation, heated budget battles and rhetoric about the size, function, scope, and effectiveness of government have generated criticism not just of the public sector, but also of the public servants who deliver government services. State governments are therefore under enormous pressure to maintain and improve performance, while at the same time doing more with less. One proven response to this leadership challenge is to improve the level of employee engagement. After all, the primary resource we have in state government is talent. If our people are engaged and perform well, government will also perform well. Empirical research has clearly and convincingly shown that improving employee engagement will drive higher levels of individual and organizational performance. Improving engagement in government results in: • Higher rates of success achieving strategic goals; • Better employee retention; • Higher levels of customer service; • More innovation; and • Less sick leave and lost time due to work-related illness and injury.
