Federal Human Capital Collaborative

The Federal Human Capital Collaborative is a problem-solving community of agency human capital leaders that seeks to transform the way government works.

For 15 years, Collaborative member agencies have come together to address the problems of federal human capital management. Working on these issues collectively is not only better than facing them alone—it is necessary.

The Collaborative offers benefits to the entire HR enterprise of federal agencies regardless of their size.

  • Chief Human Capital Officers and other senior leaders attend quarterly meetings, shape an annual HR research project conducted by the Partnership, and gain access to our Public Service Leadership 360 assessment and coaching tool.
  • Emerging (GS 9-12) and Advancing (GS 12-14) leaders join half-year HR professional development cohorts including for Emerging and Advanced HR Leaders.

How the collaborative complements the Chief Human Capital Officers Council  

Many of the agencies who belong to the Collaborative are also members of the Office of Personnel Management’s Chief Human Capital Officers Council.  The Partnership is a long-time advocate of the council, and the Collaborative is designed to complement its activities.  

The Collaborative:  

  • Is open to agencies that participate in the council as well as those that are not eligible for CHCO Council membership.    
  • Welcomes agencies of all sizes, providing a broad, whole-of-government perspective. 
  • Hosts meetings outside a government space, providing an opportunity for candid conversation and access to speakers and resources from different sectors. 
  • Provides benefits and resources to multiple levels and layers of the HR enterprise, including CHCOs, training officers, employee engagement professionals and internship coordinators. 
  • Offers access to membership-exclusive Partnership resources.
