MissionSquare Research Institute

Dedicated to Supporting Public Service Organizations and Their Employees

MissionSquare Research Institute (formerly the Center for State and Local Government Excellence) was founded in 2007 to help state and local governments attract and nurture a talented workforce that is equipped to serve their communities in the 21st Century.

Since inception, the Institute has produced major research projects, national surveys, case studies, analyses, and infographics on managing public sector recruitment, retention, retirement and employee health and wellness. MissionSquare Research Institute is widely recognized for its work, which has been cited in Congressional testimony, presented at professional conferences, covered by news media, and considered a key resource by state and local officials.

We look forward to continuing to deliver the highest quality research that strengthens organizations dedicated to serving their communities across the U.S. To receive regular insights and analysis from the Institute, sign up for the e-newsletter.
