Overview

Featured Topic: GAO Report on Key Talent Management Strategies for Agencies to Better Meet Their Missions

Technology, demographics, and attitudes toward work are evolving in the private and public sectors. But federal government employment policies were designed generations ago. As a result, the government may struggle to compete for talented workers—which is one reason why federal human capital management is an issue on GAO’s High Risk list.

At this Evolving the Workforce COI meeting, GAO will present and discuss their recent report, “Key Talent Management Strategies for Agencies to Better Meet Their Missions” that covers agencies’ talent management strategies, among other things. GAO will discuss how agencies are attracting and keeping talented workers by:

  • Offering work/life balance such as flexible scheduling
  • Recruiting graduating students earlier in the school year
  • Making work meaningful and offering development opportunities
