Recommendations on Recruiting and Hiring New Talent
On May 8, 2008, Partnership President Max Stier testified before the Senate Oversight of Government Management Subcommittee on how the federal government can effectively recruit and hire the next generation of federal employees. Among his recommendations, Stier suggested agencies adopt an “applicants’ bill of rights” that would promise a user-friendly application process. He asked Congress to require agencies to re-evaluate the process by which they assess applicants. Stier also urged Congress to require that agencies create a system of metrics to gage the effectiveness of federal recruiting, an essential tool for effective oversight.
