As the keynote speaker at an ACSS board meeting last year, DPA Director Dave Gilb warned that nearly half the state’s supervisors and managers could retire in the next five years. A Bureau of State Audits report released yesterday, and reported by The Sacramento Bee’s State Worker blog, confirms Gilb’s general predictions: Forty-two percent of the state’s leadership and more than 20 percent of its rank-and-file employees may retire in seven years. In the departments surveyed, nearly half the workers were 50 or older. Of even greater concern is that succession plans are just beginning. The blog contains a summary link; read the entire report (pdf) here.
