It turns out pay isn’t the main reason government employees leave their jobs, according to a new study conducted by Gordon Abner, assistant professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin.

  • Employees are more likely to stay at a job where they do not feel emotionally exhausted, Abner explained.
  • It is important for employers to be honest about job descriptions to ensure they’re hiring people who are truly fit the job, he said.
  • The mission behind the work is also an important factor to getting employees to stay, so employers should make the mission salient, according to Abner.
  • Dr. Hyunkang Hur, associate professor of public administration and health management at Indiana University Kokomo, is the lead author of the report.
