Private sector does a far better job of managing employee performance. There is this belief that because I'm a Federal employee, I can't be fired. We need to move away from this model and have Supervisors trained to manage performance effectively, allowing them to praise and reward high performers while managing out poor performers. There are a number of employees that feel unappreciated and others that are able to underperform while collecting a salary that could given to someone who is more talented.
