Low employee morale has been found to be among the primary factors affecting recruitment and retention in companies, according to top officials of the Department of Defense. Fierce Government, an online hub of information that follows news from the US government, quoted the deputy assistant secretary for the agency’s civilian personnel policy in an article published by FierceGvernment.com:
Varying factors such as furloughs, a three-year pay freeze, hiring freezes and ongoing budget uncertainties have and will continue to factor heavily into employees' decisions about when to depart, said Paige Hinkle-Bowles, deputy assistant secretary of defense for civilian personnel policy.
The same truth can speak for small and medium businesses outside the federal field. Those in Washington, DC for instance, can note the lesson from the agency’s findings, and subsequently work toward delivering a higher job satisfaction to their teams. A secure office environment is integral to achieving that. Metro Offices has several options for innovative office space in DC.
