ADP And IPMA-HR Study Sheds Light On U.S. Public Sector Employee Engagement

"As numerous studies have shown, there is a direct correlation between employee engagement and high performance in the workplace, as well as talent retention," said Neil Reichenberg, executive director, IPMA-HR. "Opportunities exist now for public sector HR professionals to better understand what motivates and inspires workers, and then formulate strategies for enhancing engagement at all levels."

Additional key study findings include:
  • "Serving the public with integrity" was cited as the most distinguishing engagement factor for public sector employees and is the single highest performing element in the entire survey, with 98 percent total agreement.
  • While serving the public with integrity was a nearly universal response, employees 34 years or younger, employees of all ages and technology workers were below average on identifying "making a difference " as a key component in engagement.
  • "Fully engaged" public sector employees are:
    • Twice as likely to stay in their current job
    • 2.5 times more likely to feel they can "make a difference"
    • 2.5 times more likely to recommend their workplace to others
    • Three times as likely to report being "very satisfied" in their jobs

Free Upcoming Webinar to Showcase Findings

A free webinar presenting the full findings of the study and examining key job satisfaction drivers among public sector workers will take place on October 16, 2012 from 2:00 -3:00 p.m. ETJustin Greeves, vice president, corporate research at e.Republic, Jon Bernstein, director of public sector strategies at ADP and Neil Reichenberg will also discuss various best practices in driving increased engagement levels.
