John Reeder, Deputy Chief of Staff, and Noha Gaber, EPA

Online dating has come to the EPA. It's not a romantic thing, but the concept is similar. The agency's new skills marketplace lets employees apply for projects throughout the agency. If selected, they get to do the new work, develop their skills and meet new colleagues all without leaving their day jobs. Now other agencies are paying attention. Federal News Radio Reporter Emily Kopp spoke with John Reeder, the EPA deputy chief of staff, and Noha Gaber, the acting director of internal communications. John explains why the EPA launched the marketplace.

Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

Political leaders from both the White House and Congress are offering up ways to improve the Senior Executive Service. There's the mundane the White House is launching a candidate development program. And the punitive legislation that would make it easier to fire SES members when things go wrong. Now in our special report, "Fixing the SES," we ask: Is it actually broken? Jeri Buchholz is an SES member and chief human capital officer at NASA. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, she told Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp that the SES has its faults but is essential to the government.

Why we stay: SES in their own words

The SES has lost its luster in recent years, in part because of constrained program budgets, increased scrutiny from Congress, and a sense among members that political appointees are assuming more of the leadership responsibilities once reserved for them. In part two of our special report, Fixing the SES, five Senior Executive Service members tell Federal News Radio why they choose to stay in the service, and why they believe the SES may have its faults, but it's not broken.

Emily Kopp, Reporter, Federal News Radio

Members of the Senior Executive Service have had a rough year or two. Now political leaders from both the White House and Congress offer up ways to improve the SES. There's the mundane, such as the White House is launching a candidate development program. And the punitive legislation that would make it easier to fire SES members when things go wrong. Today, Federal News Radio launches a special series called "Fixing the SES." We'll bring you the voices of those who know the system best current and former SES members. We start with former acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel. He was an SES member before becoming a political appointee. He's now an outside consultant. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, Werfel told reporter Emily Kopp that SES members are older and under more stress than ever before.

Fixing the SES: 'This used to be an honor. Now it's a joke.'

Fewer than half of the Senior Executive Service members who responded to an exclusive Federal News Radio online survey say they would join today. The survey results were even more dim for federal employees at the GS-15 and GS-14 ranks. In the first of our four-part special report, Fixing the SES, we examine how current senior execs feel about the SES, and what they believe is right and wrong with the service.
