In the News

December 30, 2016

Presidential transition is a term heard frequently these last few weeks. The concept is derived from the 220-year-old uniquely American tradition of a peaceful transfer of power from one administration to another, even if political party affiliation is different. Peaceful doesn’t imply effective, so, no matter who your candidate was, in light of all the nation’s challenges, we should all be interested.

Improving federal employee engagement must be top priority for Trump administration
In the News

December 15, 2016

The nonprofit, nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service today released the 2016 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings that show a 1.3-point rise in federal employee engagement compared to 2015, for a score of 59.4 out of 100. This builds on last years 1.2-point increase, but still leaves the government well short of its all-time best score of 65.0 in 2010 and lagging far behind the private sector when it comes to how employees view their jobs and workplaces.

The Best Places to Work rankings, produced by the Partnership and Deloitte, provide vital information to help federal agencies, the White House and Congress assess federal employee engagement and provide a roadmap for federal leaders to improve the management of the workforce and employee performance.
