In a recent survey, 82 percent of government employees said staffing shortages have increased their workloads. This added stress and scope of work are burning out employees – to the point where a third of respondents are ready to quit.

Governments can combat shortages by leveraging tech to enable data sharing, automate manual processes, and utilize digital solutions to increase overall staff capacity.
