These are tough times for the public sector. Government is under enormous pressure to maintain and improve performance, while at the same time doing more with less. One proven response to this leadership challenge is to improve the level of employee engagement. Empirical research has clearly and convincingly shown that improving employee engagement can drive higher levels of individual and organizational performance. This session will be based on Lavigna’s book, Engaging Government Employees: Motivate and Inspire Your People to Achieve Superior Performance.




  • Explain what employee engagement is and why it matters, particularly in government.

  • Discuss why measuring employee engagement is critically important.

  • Breakdown the results of a national benchmark survey on the levels of employee engagement in both public and private sectors.

  • Analyze what public sector organizations have done to improve — and sustain — engagement.

    Bob Lavigna, Director of the Institute for Public Sector Employee Engagement,  has more than 30 years of experience leading public sector HR organizations and programs. He is an elected Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration and was selected as a “Public Official of the Year” by Governing magazine. Additionally, Lavigna is the author of Engaging Government Employees: Motivate and Inspire Your People to Achieve Superior Performance.
