Hire, Train and Manage a High-Performing Federal Workforce During an Election Year
May 18, 2004
On May 18, 2004, at a hearing of the House Government Reform Subcommittee on Civil Service and Agency Organization, Kevin Simpson, Executive Vice President of the Partnership for Public Service, recommended that efforts to improve the federal government’s ability to develop and manage a high-performing workforce are not disrupted by the changes in agency leadership that accompany an election year.
The hearing was held to assess how federal agencies have implemented legislation creating Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCO) at major agencies to align workforce planning with top strategic goals, and to learn about the accomplishments of the CHCO Council, an interagency task force designed to assist CHCOs in carrying out their responsibilities.
