Bob Tobias, American University

If you believe the surveys, federal workplace morale and employee engagement have declined in recent years. For a variety of reasons, a disconnect has occurred between federal employees and their managers. As part our special report, Trust Redefined: Reconnecting Government and Its Employees, we're exploring how feds can develop a new model of trust. Bob Tobias is director of Key Executive Leadership Programs at American University. He joined Tom and Emily on the Federal Drive and explained, first, you have to solve the gap between GS-15s and SESers, and the employees they lead.

Debra Roth, partner, Shaw, Bransford & Roth

Perhaps nowhere in the federal workforce is trust more frail than in the intelligence community. It is still reeling from the revelations of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The Director of National Intelligence recently issued two policies to clamp down on employees' speech. The first says only a few authorized officials can talk with journalists. In this week's Legal Loop, Tom and Emily looked at the policy's impact on trust in the intelligence community as part of our special report, Trust Redefined: Reconnecting Government and Its Employees. Employment lawyer Debra Roth said on The Federal Drive the new policy stands out because it covers unclassified information.

Every year, different groups, associations and magazines publish their lists of best federal agencies, best places to work, etc. A few places are always near the top but the lists do change. Partly because some places try harder and get better and partly because if the rankings didn't change, there would be no reason for a list, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So who's on your personal best list?

How to make the federal workforce feel respected once again

Don't treat whistleblowers like the plague

So, why is it that they are sometimes shunned, or worse, for bringing issues of waste, fraud and abuse to the surface? In a column for Federal News Radio's special report, Trust Redefined: Reconnecting Government and Its Employees, Tom Devine of the Government Accountability Project explains why he believes whistleblowers should be embraced.
