Efforts to Strengthen the Federal HR Workforce
As part of Public Service Recognition Week, the Senate Oversight of Government Management Subcommittee held a hearing on May 9, 2012, to examine how the federal government can build and maintain an effective HR workforce. John Palguta, Vice President for Policy, testified on behalf of the Partnership.
In his testimony, Palguta discussed the critical need for developing a highly-competent HR workforce and outlined the current challenges the HR workforce is facing as it operates in a budget-constrained environment. He highlighted positive efforts that are under way, including the creation of HR University, and stresses the need for OPM, federal leaders across government and Congress to pay additional attention to these issues.
