A recent report from the Merit Systems Protection Board reveals that cursory assessments of training and experience are often unreliable indicators of how employees will actually fare on the job. MPSB's John Ford tells the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what hiring managers can do to up their hiring game. Plus, Sam Davis, vice president of AMA Enterprise Government Solutions, discusses how hiring flexibilities will boost agencies' efforts to hire the long-term unemployed.
Jeff Neal, former chief human capital officer at the Department of Homeland Security, says you shouldn't believe everything you read -- especially when it comes to federal employees.
Data obtained by The Associated Press shows that the number of officers who left the Army due to misconduct more than tripled in the past three years.
Federal agencies in the Washington, D.C., region are open Friday, February 14, with a two-hour delayed arrival in effect. Employees also have the option to take unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework.

The National Treasury Employees Union has distributed copies of a new public-service announcement featuring NTEU members to 300 TV stations and 1,000 radio stations nationwide. The theme of NTEU's campaign is "They Work for US." In addition to the radio and TV ads, the effort includes a website, Facebook page and a social media push. In a conference call with reporters Wednesday announcing the campaign, NTEU President Colleen Kelley said the aim of the campaign is to change the conversation about federal employees.
The VA Management Accountability Act would give VA Secretary Eric Shinseki broad authority to remove Senior Executives Service (SES) members "if the secretary determines the performance of the individual warrants such removal," according to the bill. In addition to outright removal, the bill would allow the VA secretary to bump SES members down to the General Schedule at any grade level the secretary deems appropriate according to the bill.
There are many good reasons why the general schedule must be reformed, says former DHS CHCO Jeff Neal. Among them is the idea that all federal employees are either over or underpaid, that GS pay is truly based on labor costs by location, and that the GS system no longer covers most employees.
After playing defense for much of last year the largest federal-employee union is ready to play offense. American Federation of Government Employees National President J. David Cox gave a fiery speech at the union's annual legislative and grassroots mobilization conference in Washington. Also addressing the AFGE crowd were lawmakers from both sides of the aisle.
