Recruitment in the Federal Government

May 7, 2009

On May 7, 2009, Partnership President and CEO, Max Stier, testified before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee on the Oversight of Government Management, the Federal Workforce and the District of Columbia on recruitment and hiring in the federal government.

Stier addressed federal workforce challenges, the urgency of improving the hiring process, the barriers to finding the right talent, the lack of information on applicants, why flexible hiring is under-utilized and where more support is needed. Stier suggested improvements to S. 736, the Federal Hiring Process Improvement Act, and offered additional recommendations to the Subcommittee, including that OPM be directed to conduct the Federal Human Capital Survey on an annual basis.
