Larry Allen, president of Allen Federal Business Partners, and Jeff Neal, senior vice president of ICF International, join Francis Rose to count down the week's top federal stories.
Faced with decreasing budgets and shocks such as sequestration, agencies can no longer afford to carry out business-as-usual with respect to common support services.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says budget cuts are forcing the Pentagon to put all kinds of options on the table. Four billion dollars go toward the Human Resources and EEO workforce. But your agency could share that burden. Jeff Neal, senior vice president of ICF International and former Chief Human Capital Officer and the Department of Homeland Security, writes about why you shouldn't be scared of shared services on the ChiefHRO blog.
Absent significant investment in developing the leadership abilities of supervisors, the federal government is going to have morale and performance issues for years to come, says Jeff Neal, former CHCO at Homeland Security.
About 70 percent of federal employees are against introducing a performance-based system for calculating pay raises, according to the 2013 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. But that's one of the proposals from the Partnership for Public Service and Booz Allen Hamilton in their plan to reform the General Schedule system. Jeff Neal, senior vice president of ICF International and former chief human capital officer at the Department of Homeland Security, gave his ideas for reforming GS pay scales on In Depth with Francis Rose.
The General Schedule was designed for a federal workforce that no longer exists, says former DHS CHCO Jeff Neal. But there are ways to fix it.
The Office of Personnel Management is making tweaks to how agencies report time-to-hire data. But experts who spoke to Federal News Radio say they don't think OPM is giving up on the idea of improving the federal hiring process. Instead, they say, it appears OPM may be shifting its focus to measuring the quality of new federal hires.
The 65-year-old pay system isn't cutting it with a younger workforce.
Many smart, well-informed and thoughtful people assume that the only alternative to the General Schedule is pay for performance, but Jeff Neal, former CHCO at the Homeland Security Department disagrees.
Some HR practitioners say the process of identifying some goals, setting multiple levels of achievement, then judging employee performance annually is a best practice. That may be true, but that doesn't mean it is a good practice.
