From Candidates to Change Makers: Recruiting and Hiring the Next Generation of Federal Employees



According to the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Budget Justification for fiscal year 2009, more than half of the federal government’s employees will become eligible for retirement in the next ten years and approximately 40 percent of the federal workforce is expected to retire. The Chief Human Capital Officers Council is working with Federal agencies to develop the best practices for hiring, succession planning, and strategic human capital plans to address this crisis. However, many candidates continue to complain about the difficult process for entry into federal government jobs, despite OPM’s efforts to improve the recruitment and hiring process. The hearing will examine the challenges of the recruiting and hiring processes for federal government jobs.
