Eduardo Ribas — Chief Human Capital Officer, FERC
Both the administration and Congress have spent a lot of effort trying to improve the senior executive service. They want SESers to have more job mobility. They want to make sure there is always a next generation of SESers in training. And they want to make sure senior executives get the recognition and compensation they deserve. Eduardo Ribas shares what the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is doing to improve mobility for its top managers and how the agency prepares future executives as part of Federal News Radio's weeklong multimedia series, "The Obama Impact, Evaluating the Last Four Years."
Linda Bilmes — Senior Lecturer in Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School of Government
President Barack Obama has pushed agencies to make their job application processes quicker and better. He's told them to hire more veterans and people with disabilities. And his administration has changed the pathways young people can take to enter the federal workforce. Linda Bilmes teaches students keenly interested in public policy. She served as Assistant Secretary and Chief Financial Officer of the Commerce Department during the Clinton administration. Bilmes discusses how these policy changes have affected hiring for young workers plus recruitment and retention rates. Federal News Radio examined what mark the Obama White House has left on the federal workforce. It's part of our weeklong multimedia series "The Obama Impact: Evaluating the Last Four Years"
Peter Schroeder — Reporter, The Hill
You rarely hear an apology from Capitol Hill. But some lawmakers say they may have been too hasty to pass a financial disclosure law. And now there's a chance they could revise the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act. The revised law requires lawmakers and about 28,000 federal executives to publish their personal financial information online. Last week a federal judge issued a temporary injunction halting enforcement of the law that pertains to career employees. Peter Schroeder writes for The Hill newspaper and he breaks down what to expect next and whether Congress will change the law.
