UPDATE: More on training and mentoring managers at your agency
Tuesday - 5/4/2010, 5:53pm EDT
"For many years now, the care and feeding of the federal workforce has been the purview of Hawaii Senator Daniel Akaka (D.), chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Government Management and the Federal Workforce -- a part of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
"During his recent hearing on 'Training and Mentoring Programs for Federal Supervisors', Akaka discussed legislation he's drafted and introduced.
"Nancy Kichak, Associate Director and Chief Human Capital Officer with the Office of Personnel Management, says her agency is currently developing plans as part of its broader goal of reforming the federal hiring process, to redefine training and mentoring programs for prospective federal managers.
"Marilee Fitzgerald, acting Deputy Secretary of Defense for Civilian Personnel Policy, told the subcommittee about the Pentagon's work in the area of improving training and opportunities for those aspiring to jobs as supervisors in DoD.
UPDATE: Today I followed up yesterday's testimony from Ms. Kichak and Ms. Fitzgerald with questions from Senators Akaka and George Voinovich. They were the witnesses on the first panel; you can read more about the second panel and the witnesses on it here.
