August 10, 2012 -- This week on "Fed Access", Linda Rix, co-CEO of Avue Technologies, joins host Derrick Dortch to talk about the challenges facing Human Resources managers in the federal government.

She will discuss what's ahead for HR managers as they try to deal with downsizing, early retirement, and the so-called "brain drain" at federal agencies over the next few years, and how those agencies should operate going forward.

Rix will also discuss a new report that paints a bleak picture of how HR professionals view federal managers.

According to the report, issued by the Partnership for Public Service and the consulting firm Grant Thornton,one third of HR pros surveyed, said agency managers don't have the leadership skills they need to succeed.
