Change supervisor selection process

Pilot and then implement a new selection process for supervisors, wherein they are elected by the people they supervise. Could apply to higher-compensated positions. The Federal Viewpoint survey identifies problems with supervisors as one of the biggest challenges for the federal government. Research identifies that most people leave their jobs because of their leaders. This approach ensures a focus on the higher-level objectives that keep workers motivated, and it will reduce attrition and start-up costs for replacement employees, thereby reducing the cost of government. The result? Higher performance, lower cost.
