I read and enjoyed the article by Aliya Sternstein. While I agree that there may be value in high employee turnover in a unique field like cyber security, in general it deminishes the return on investment of the government’s training and perfessional development dollars. Even with the laws and policies in place requiring “continuing service agreements,” we lose considerable falue when one of our graduates from a master’s program in cyber security leaves after three years to work in a coorporate position paying a higher salary for his or her government experience and government funded education. Should we be doing better in retaining the value of our employees while ensuring that their skills remain current and their motivation remains high?
