Survey Results: Public Sector Employee Views on Finance and Employment Outlook Due to COVID-19
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to present many challenges to state and local governments, a new national poll reveals that public employees are deeply worried about their personal safety, family finances, losing their job, furloughs, and pay and benefit reductions. Despite their concerns, the research finds that public employees value serving their communities during this difficult time and feel that working in the public sector during the pandemic is a source of pride.
This poll was recently conducted by the Center for State and Local Government Excellence and ICMA-RC. Click the image below to download the full report, or access a supporting infographic here. Also available are the related webinar slides and recording.
