The public sector is at a crossroads as its work force is getting older and lags behind the private sector in attracting younger employees. State arts agencies and other government agencies face staff attrition as about 10,000 baby boomers retire every day. Compounding this challenge is the fact that 10% more millennials work in the private sector than in civil service.
Join NASAA and representatives from the Center for State and Local Government Excellence for a discussion about public-sector work-force trends and strategies for attracting younger people to civil service and supporting their growth as public servants. NASAA will present the findings from its latest State Arts Agency (SAA) Staffing Trends Report and highlight SAA initiatives designed to recruit and develop future SAA leaders. The Center for State and Local Government Excellence will discuss its recent report, Workforce of the Future: Strategies to Manage Change, and its recommendations for building a robust pipeline for government service.
