Federal managers mixed on need for pay freeze
Thursday - 12/16/2010, 5:13pm EST
Bryan Klopack, director of research at the Government Business Council, joined the DorobekINSIDER to discuss a survey of federal managers by Government Executive.
Some of the findings may surprise you:
- 31 percent of respondents said they somewhat or strongly agreed that a pay freeze is necessarily. 23 percent said it was fair to have a freeze.
- The majority -- 88 percent -- of respondents said a pay freeze would decrease employee morale in their agency.
- 62 percent of respondents not eligible to retire said a pay freeze would have no impact on their consideration to leave government service, while one-third said they would be more likely to seek a job in the private sector. Many federal managers said job security, proximity to retirement and years of investment in civil service would keep them in government.
