HireStrategy, a leading provider of professional staffing services for the Washington region, released their latest report on the region's job market, which examines general workplace topics like employee satisfaction and trust in employers, but also digs into Washington, D.C.-specific issues like fluidity between public and private sector, commuting, and more.
As it goes in D.C., there are two major parties that influence the way things are run – the public and private sectors. The scale of public sector is the most defining feature of the D.C. economy and there is a perceived frictional dynamic between the public and private sector – yet the survey revealed that few differences exist between the two.
Employees in both sectors – 89 percent of public sector employees and 86 percent of private sector employees – overwhelmingly indicate they’d be open to working in the other. Yet with this openness what’s most notable is that both parties still feel confined to their sector, even while more than a third report that they don’t view their sector as superior.
Not surprisingly, public sector employees did rank job security (84%) as a benefit, higher than private sector employees, while the private sector indicated higher salary was of more value to them at 85 percent.
