The University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh Whitburn Center for Governance and Policy Research has released a new research report on the state of Wisconsin’s local government workforce. The report, co-authored by Michael R. Ford and Lisa M. Lewis, utilizes survey and interview data collected from a cross-section of local government executives to answer three research questions:
1) How can municipalities build management skills and incentive structures in a post collective bargaining public sector?
2) How can municipalities address staffing challenges in local government?
3) How can municipalities recruit and retain a diverse and talented workforce?
