OPM, OMB urge more investment in senior execs

Members of the Senior Executive Service could have more training and development opportunities, according to a memo from the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Personnel Management.
"You are consistently asked to do more with less against a backdrop of heightened accountability for performance and too few professional development opportunities," according to the Feb. 18 memo. "The best organizations know that especially in challenging economic times, investing in their senior executives pays off."
In May 2010, working groups with the President's Management Council and the Chief Human Capital Officers Council launched a cross-agency effort to strengthen the SES corps. The memo outlined the proposed recommendations, including:
- Increased engagement between SES and agency leaders on key issues
- One-year onboarding program to transition into executive roles
- A central database of job and rotational opportunities and directory of current SES members
- Pilot project to enable rotational opportunities for "high-potential staff" at the GS13-15 level
- Recruitment through resume-based hiring
The memo says that OMB and OPM will reach out to SES members in the next few months for input.
