Gov. Ned Lamont’s administration has hired a private consultant to evaluate the efficiency of Connecticut’s state government workforce and help the state prepare for the large number of state employees who are anticipated to retire by 2022.
The Democrat said Boston Consulting Group will provide him and the General Assembly with recommendations on how to mitigate possible negative impacts from the retirements and to use the situation as a chance to modernize and improve state government.
The examination is expected to be completed by February 2021. About 25% of state government workforce will be eligible to retire by 2022.
