❝The mission demands a federal workforce that's flexible and resilient enough to accommodate the ever-changing nature of work. And it must bring out the best in civil servants.❞

  • Effective and efficient mission achievement and improved service to America through enhanced alignment and strategic management of the Federal workforce.
  • The challenges include: parts of today’s personnel system are a relic of an earlier era that ill-serves Federal managers and employees; the Federal personnel system is unduly complex leading to a focus on compliance and transaction management rather than results and customer service; instead of agencies determining the best way to accomplish the mission, they map jobs in a fixed manner with outdated processes and functions; not aligning the workforce to mission requirements means the workforce is not being leveraged to meet emerging needs; HR IT systems are antiquated and not interoperable.
  • To achieve a state where Federal agencies and managers can hire the best employees, remove the worst employees, and engage employees at all levels of the organization, the Government must put a framework in place that drives and encourages strategic human capital management.
