Amid the coronavirus and financial crisis, local governments are facing a shortage of qualified talent. Of the state and local governments surveyed by the Center for State and Local Government Excellence in 2020, 83% reported “recruitment and retention of qualified personnel with needed skills for public service” was a top workforce issue for their organization.
