Agencies are struggling to fill gaps in their succession-planning efforts, according to a new survey. Many of the HR professionals surveyed said their agencies aren't planning to invest in key succession-planning initiatives.

John Palugta, vice president for policy at the partnership, joined Tom and Emily on the Federal Drive to discuss the highlights of the survey.
