The pandemic’s enormous disruptive effect on the economy, jobs, and staffing is not yet over and is showing signs of revolutionizing how people view work.
While there is some evidence that lingering Covid-19 strains and federal unemployment benefits, due to expire at the end of this summer, may be slowing workers’ return, it is clear the nearly 18-month hiatus from the office is altering work goals and plans.
Some people are retiring rather than returning to their jobs. In contrast, others are seemingly willing to make lifestyle changes enabling them to leave the workplace to spend more time with family or on alternative pursuits.
But, the change most likely to affect the public sector is to pass on cradle-to-grave career jobs in favor of the perceived benefits of the gig economy. Surveys and research show nearly a third of the workforce already work remotely or are engaged in the gig economy full or part-time in many areas of the country. Experts predict that if current trends persist, this figure will increase to more than 50% of the workforce by 2027.
With such employment disruption, State and Local Government and Higher Education employers will continue to turn to Careers In Government to assist in their recruitment.
And that’s why Careers in Government continues to be highlighted as a leader in online recruiting for the public sector. Its industry achievements include multiple Innovator of the Year awards by the world’s largest HR Technology Association and Forbes Magazine has listed it numerous times as the nation’s “Best Government Career Website.”
It is also annually listed in the top 10% of all “social media influencers” in the nation and reaches more than 15 million people a month on social media alone.
