National Park Service still has low employee morale and high attrition, nonprofit says

The National Park Service has faced employee morale problems in recent years, including allegations of harassment. A nonprofit says that many problems persist.

Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility has criticized the Park Service’s record of employee harassment, and how it has handled the issue in the past.

The nonprofit says that a new report shows the agency has failed to address the problems, and that the agency has a high rate of attrition. 

It did show some areas of improvement — including trust in senior leaders — but showed declines in various markers of overall job satisfaction, including pay. The Park Service also frequently scored lower than other government bureaus.
