Hiring Excellence: Mission Priority for Federal Workforce Management
The federal Hiring Excellence Program is proving to be impactful on the current federal workforce landscape. As human resource management strategists, your mission to hire excellence is defined by the successful implementation of this strategy.
It is mission critical to get the right person in the job. The best qualified would be the one whose skills best compliment the job requirements and balances the needs of the overall team. We continually look for ways to improve talent acquisition and develop a highly qualified, diverse applicant pool, so the best and brightest can be selected.
The federal workforce has focused its mission to ensure that the government is hiring excellent people. In 2016, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM)) launched a new hiring campaign assuring federal agencies that their hiring practices will seek out the highest qualified applicants. Hiring Excellence has provided key tools and solutions to hire and develop a keenly talented, adeptly skilled federal workforce. From the inception of the 2016 initiatives to today, the program has grown and allowed agencies to prioritized key actions for the fiscal years 2017, 2018 and beyond.
