Study shows half of federal workers considering leaving government
From Washington Technology | February 21, 2014
Frustrated by pay freezes, furloughs and the current political environment, 50 percent of federal employees are thinking of jumping ship and working outside of government.
Mission effectiveness is already suffering as a result.
According to a poll of 370 federal workers conducted by Market Connections and FierceGovIT, many government employees cited recent policies as a reason to defect from government work, and 39 percent of respondents said staffing issues have gotten so bad that mission-critical work is going undone.
