Uncle Sam employs a larger percentage of veterans than any big company in the nation...we know it's policy and it's the right thing to do. But is it a good idea? Senior Correspondent Mike Causey reports that a been-there-done-that type says "Roger that..."
The Office of Personnel Management wants agencies to use workplace flexibility to encourage federal workers to pursue activities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — or STEM.
Shrinking budgets and a tough economy are posing problems for federal chief human capital officers, according to a new survey by the Partnership for Public Service and Grant Thornton.

Hispanics accounted for more than eight in 100 civilian federal employees in 2011. The minority group also made gains in the Senior Executive Service and represented the third largest ethnic group in the federal government.
The federal government now employs more full-time workers with disabilities than it has at any time over the past 20 years, according to a new report from the Office of Personnel Management. President Barack Obama pledged in 2010 to hire 100,00 additional people with disabilities over the next five years.

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.
All four active services and the six reserve components met or exceeded their recruiting goals through the third quarter of fiscal 2012, according to recently released Defense Department data.
President Barack Obama issued a memorandum Thursday calling on agencies to comply with protections laid out in The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 when hiring returning veterans.
