Analysts conclude that federal agencies need to do more to manage employees

Employees need training and advancement opportunities in order to be productive and satisfied with their jobs, but a recent survey of federal employees suggests that federal agencies are failing to manage employees in such a way as to promote career development and effectively utilize their talents.

The survey data were collected and analyzed by the Partnership for Public Service and Deloitte, and the analysts came to the following conclusions:

  • Less than one-third of federal employees are satisfied with career advancement opportunities within their organization.
  • Less than 40 percent think their agencies' recruiting methods result in finding the right talent.
  • Less than 50 percent said they were satisfied with available training opportunities.
  • Only about 50 percent think their skills are being effectively utilized by management.
  • Roughly 40 percent were satisfied with recognition in the workplace.

When compared with the private sector, federal employees rank their organizations about 15 to 20 points lower, according to the analysts. They recommend that federal managers do more to partner with HR in order to recruit top talent, provide effective training and increase opportunities for upward mobility.

The reality is that federal employees may encounter a variety of situations that result in disputes and grievances. In many cases, it is possible to resolve the matter through mediation or arbitration. In other cases, administrative proceedings or litigation may be necessary.
