Neil Reichenberg has devoted his career to helping the public sector hire and keep employees.
It’s a tough time to be working in government. The recession fortunately seems to be behind us, but most of the job recovery has been in the private sector. When the recession came, governments cut back on pay increases. Today, public-sector employment is worse than it was before the recession, and turnover is going up. This has been the case even though there’s been population growth and more demands on governments to provide services.
