Federal Human Capital Collaborative

The Federal Human Capital Collaborative is a problem-solving community of agency HR leaders with the goal of transforming the way government works through innovation and strengthening policy.

From hiring and retaining an effective workforce to assessing and rewarding performance, federal managers must deal with challenges that are complex, numerous and ever-changing. Solving human resources problems requires in-depth research, focused collaboration and shared expertise. Working on these issues collectively is not only better than facing them alone—it is absolutely necessary.

The Collaborative offers a unique opportunity for HR leaders to share and access the tools that they need to address the problems of federal human capital management. Agency HR leaders come together at the Partnership to:

  • Collectively identify critical issues
  • Share best practices
  • Develop strategies to effect change across government and within individual departments and agencies
  • Provide input on the Partnership’s research agenda
  • Build interagency relationships
