Each year, the Govżt. hires tens of thousands of new employees. Traditionally, the vast majority of these new employees were appointed at grades GS-11 and below. However, the number of new hires at grades GS-12 and above has been increasing, especially since FY 2000. New programs often require the influx of new expertise at higher levels. As the senior or journeyman-level analysts, supervisors and managers, these new upper level employees have critical roles in the effective and efficient operation of the Govżt.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. In 2007, 73% of state and local govżt. employees were covered by Social Security (SS). Unlike the private sector where most employees are covered by SS, federal law generally permits each public employer to decide which employees to cover. The Social Security Admin. (SSA) is responsible for facilitating SS coverage for these employers through agreements with states.

This report emphasizes the role that employee engagement plays in improving Federal agency outcomes. A focus on strategies to further engage the Federal work force is critical as agencies attempt to improve their operations within budget constraints, and as they face increasing numbers of retirement-eligible employees in a labor market where there is intense competition for top talent.

In either case, most experts agree that the Gov¿t. will need to replace half a million employees in the near future. These new employees will serve as the backbone of the Fed. civil service for a generation. This report studies how new employees are brought into the
