What are your agencies biggest workforce challenges?

When you share your experiences as an individual working for the government, you provide valuable insight that has a ripple effect across the public sector. You get to share the great job your agency is doing in strategic priority areas, challenges you and your peers face, and help set a framework for progress and innovation.

What is the government insight panel™


The government has unique needs, and the only way to pinpoint them is to ask government employees and contractors that work onsite at government agencies. The Government Insight Panel™ is the only research panel for this specific audience in the U.S. That means every person on it has a unique ability to make a real and lasting difference.

Hundreds of government employees and contractors participate in Market Connections' Government Insight Panel™ to share their insights into government decision-making, needs, expectations, priorities, challenges, and successes.

Segments include Federal Civilian, Federal Defense, State and Local Government, and Contractors onsite at government agencies.
