Even though a massive federal retirement tsunami has been a no-show, even a moderate uptick in retirements could pose challenges for agencies — especially as they face decreasing budgets due to sequestration and declining staffs.

In this special Federal Drive panel discussion hosted by Tom Temin and Emily Kopp, guest experts discuss the impending retirement wave and how agencies can plan effectively for the loss of experience and knowledge when their long-time employees head for the experts.
