If government officials are lazier than employees working for a business firm. What are some hidden information and hidden action explanations?

 

Answer:

If government officials are lazier than employees working for a business firm, then it may be because of below mentioned hidden information and hidden action explanations:

–Private businesses might be better structured to link external motivators to employees productivity, but government officials work may be intrinsically. There is a common belief that extrinsic rewards and punishments are the primary sources of work motivation among employees that may underlie the popular perception of the lazy bureaucrat, as governments face more difficulties than businesses in using discipline or compensation to motivate managers and employees

–Perceptions of the public service have deep impact on the sort of workers it attracts. If Americans feel that government jobs are undemanding, lazy people may prefer them

— Public and private workers may differ in the terms of personal characteristics that predict their work preference and effort
