Cal-ICMA Talent Initiative Survey

As part of its Talent Initiative, Cal-ICMA is seeking responses to a survey on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the post-pandemic workforce.

The purpose of Cal-ICMA’s Talent Initiative is to engage Chief Executives, HR Directors, and emerging leaders of cities, counties, and special districts in a conversation about three questions:

  1. What are the kinds of talent challenges that confound local governments in California?
  2. What obstacles hinder our efforts to address talent challenges?
  3. What are the best practices, culture-building strategies, and other resources we can leverage to better attract, retain, and grow talent?

The survey results will build upon prior work of the Talent Initiative and be used to identify and generate support for innovative local government best practices.

The target audience for the survey is broadly the public sector in California – from City Managers to young professionals and everyone in between.
