During the 114th Congress, the Subcommittee identified a number of challenges that federal managers face as they oversee employees and work to achieve their agencies’ missions. The 2016 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) highlights a number of these same challenges while it also reveals areas of strength. The Subcommittee will explore common sense federal workforce reform ideas that build on these strengths and solve workforce challenges. This hearing provided a forum for federal managers and senior executives with extensive experience managing federal civil servants to discuss government-wide ideas for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the civil service.
