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.

  • Employees feel trapped: 49 percent of public sector employees feel confined to working in the public sector; 44 percent of private sector employees feel this way about the private sector.
  • Many don’t believe their sector is best: 39 percent of public sector employees don’t think the public sector is better than the private sector; 33 percent of private sector employees feel this way about the private sector.
  • Still, the grass isn’t any greener: 93 percent of private sector and 89 percent of public sector employees are satisfied at work; each indicated the industry they work in and the work they do as the top areas where they find satisfaction in their job.

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.
