To achieve its mission the government must ensure that it is able to find and hire the best talent possible. We have terrific people in the Federal government. However we often miss out on talented individuals because the application and hiring process is so cumbersome and slow that people do not choose to apply for positions or they find other jobs before the hiring process is complete. The Administration has put speeding up and improving the hiring process to attract top talent high on its performance agenda in order to address this issue.
Attracting people to government service is only the beginning – agencies also must treat employees well in order to engage and retain talented individuals. To that end, agencies are continuing to work on promoting a healthy work-life balance and creating development opportunities to engage the workforce, improve employee well-being, and increase government performance.
