Federal agencies are on their final leg on the road to reform hiring. Before the end of the year, all federal agencies should have reduced their overall hiring process down to 80 days. Part of this effort has required agencies to take less time making decisions candidates. Recently, the Air Force cut in half the time it would take to make the call from 30 days down to 15. Dr. Todd Fore, executive director of the Air Force Personnel Center at Randolph Air Force Base, discusses the latest on how the Air Force is improving the federal recruitment and hiring process.
Democratic lawmakers are pressuring the military to diversify its top ranks quickly. Sens.
