The federal workforce has been used as a political football for decades. But the fed-bashing has risen to unprecedented levels in recent years. While that kind of rhetoric may be useful in politics, it is destructive for governance and the people who make up our government, according to Jeff Neal, former chief human capital officer at the Department of Homeland Security and founder of the blog, ChiefHRO.com.
