The COVID-19 pandemic and historic levels of workers quitting their jobs have rapidly reshaped the American workplace over the last few years. During this era known as “the Great Resignation,” recruiting and retaining talent has been a significant challenge across industries.

In the most recent NCPERS Public Retirement Systems Study, 56 percent of reporting funds said they anticipate having a problem attracting and retaining skilled staff. And, according to the 2022 Public Pension Compensation Survey, that number has only continued to rise.

The inaugural survey—featuring in-depth data from more than 150 public pension funds—compares the compensation and benefits offered to senior employees to help ensure these key positions were filled with skilled and qualified staff.
