Creating a Positive Office Culture

It’s critical that Members of Congress (and their senior managers) take time to consciously think about their office culture. Those who have negative or unproductive work environments tend to experience high staff turnover, low morale, insufficient institutional memory, and a lack of teamwork. In a CMF-SHRM survey of more than 1400 congressional staff, 79% rated their overall office culture as very important to their job satisfaction, but only 41% were very satisfied with this aspect.

Are Grassroots Emails to Congress Effective Anymore? (Session 2)

But, is the era of mass email campaigns' influence on Congress coming to a close?

Social media has gained a foothold in congressional offices. In 2017, CMF partnered with The National Journal to update CMF's 2014 survey of congressional Legislative Directors and Communications Directors.

  • When should advocates use social media vs. other forms of communication?
