Sequestration slowing OPM's efforts to clear retirement backlog

OPM processed just 8,683 claims last month about 2,800 fewer than it had initially expected to. That's the second month in a row OPM fell behind in processing monthly claims according to new OPM data.

Light traffic today? Blame the F word

If traffic is a little light today, don't credit it entirely to the weather or people on alternative work schedules. In many places you can chalk it up to the presence of the F-word, which is becoming part of the deal if you work for Uncle Sam, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.

Hiring reforms thriving despite freezes, early outs

In an exclusive Federal News Radio survey, agency chief human capital officers said the hiring reforms instituted by the Obama administration are working. Most respondents said it now takes their agencies 46 to 100 days, on average, to hire new employees. Hiring reforms also have improved diversity at agencies and the ability to bring on more talented employees. At the same time, CHCOs said sequestration is impacting their ability to train and complete HR projects.
