As move to mobile grows, federal workforce adapts to new normal

The mobile revolution isn't new to many agencies. Laptops and BlackBerrys have been standard issue for many government executives for the last decade. What is different, however, is the widespread use of smartphones and tablet computers.

In our special report, Gov 3.0: It's Mobile, Federal News Radio explores how some agencies are meeting the demand internally and externally for mobile devices and apps. The challenge, like any new technology, is ensuring these devices actually help meet mission goals and don't become just another shiny toy.

Uptick in disability discrimination claims could jeopardize hiring goals, firm says

Fear hinders hiring people with disabilities

This week is the two-year anniversary of President Barack Obama's executive order to hire 100,000 more people with disabilities into the federal government by 2015. But the government is not on track to meet that goal, only hiring 20,000 people with disabilities for fiscal 2010 and 2011 combined, according to the Office of Personnel Management. As of fiscal 2010, less than 1 percent of the federal workforce had a targeted disability.
