Majority of Feds Don’t Believe Agencies Will Reward or Promote Them
June 19, 2013
Less than half of federal employees believe they will be rewarded or promoted for doing a good job, according to a new analysis.
Forty-three percent, or four out of every 10 federal workers, said they thought they would receive performance-based awards or better job opportunities at their agencies, the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service and consulting firm Deloitte found. The data gauging employees’ perceptions of awards and promotions, based on the Partnership’s 2012 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government, reveal that it has been the survey’s lowest-rated category since 2005. The 2012 score is 2.5 points lower than the 2011 score.
