An alternative explanation

"A quarter of senior civil servants quit Whitehall under Coalition" says the Failygraph.

Civil service unions say that the high rate of turnover was "because of low morale". However, we are also told that many of the senior civil servants will have gone into lucrative jobs in the private sector.

Now then, rather than "low morale", per se, could the reason why so many civil servants are leaving be because they are being offered "lucrative jobs in the private sector"?
