The federal pay freeze and potential benefits cuts were just two of the obstacles federal human resource officers had to deal with this year.

Human resources expert Paul Rowson joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the challenges and changes faced by chief human capital officers and HR managers in 2011, as well as what they'll have to look for in 2012.

In an exclusive Federal News Radio survey, agency chief human capital officers also indicated concern about retaining a committed workforce.
