  • Yea, Right

    Try to do the right thing as a supervisior with poor performers and the good old boy network will have your supervisory duties, and EEO will support them until you leave the agency.

  • Nonautomatic WIGIs - Get real
    Jeremiah
    Mr. Berry is well aware that such a "reminder" will do nothing to change the long established paradigm of automatically granting, with few and then only highly egregious exceptions, WIGIs to the "good, the bad, and the ugly" in the Federal workforce. The autopilot mode of the WIGI process is not going to go away as long as managers choose to tolerate mediocre to poor performance because they view the WIGI denial process as cumbersome and likely to generate grievances and/or EEO complaints that will complicate their lives. The Berry memo puts down a CYA marker to which OPM can point in the future when questioned on this issue: "See, we provided firm guidance to the agencies; so don't, oh please, don't blame us when they ignored it." Talk about hypocrisy.
