Recruiting, Retaining, and Motivating the Federal Workforce


Attracting and maintaining a highly motivated federal workforce is the topic of this study, which focuses on the Presidential Management Intern Program. Johnson examines the program and its interns from 1978-1984, citing their current employment status; discussing the met and unmet expectations that led the interns to either stay in federal service or to leave; and drawing larger conclusions that can be applied to building a federal workforce in other areas. Among the subjects addressed are the viability of the internship model as a recruitment vehicle and the role played by the denigration of public service.
