In summary federal employment appears to be favorable

This preview shows page 9 - 11 out of 11 pages.

In summary, Federal employment appears to be favorable when compared to the private sector based on the competitive advantages made available to its employees. Strategically, the Government’s advantage is tied directly to the factors prioritized by individuals when determining the best place of employment. Typically, these factors can vary in order of importance to the individual, but are generally characterized by the direct benefit they will provide to the individual or their family, and how these factors contribute percentage-wise towards their total compensation.In most cases, the benefits available to Government employees far outweigh the benefits offered for similar positions outside the Government, especially when you consider the immeasurable value that quality of life and feeling valued as an employee can provide.
