Mitre has provided the Office of Management and Budget with a document that outlines recommendations from public and private sector entities in the U.S. for addressing various workforce challenges in the government.
The non-profit organization said Tuesday that the Symposium on the Federal Workforce for the 21st Century Report includes insights from over 150 workforce leaders from federal agencies, companies and academic institutions to guide the government in employee management and civil service reform.
Mitre recommended to the government to increase the use of apprenticeships, hiring authorities and talent exchange program partnerships; leverage data science for evidence-based human resource strategies; and integrate training and reskilling processes in technology procurement.
The organization also proposed forming collaborations with labor groups; establishing a talent marketplace for mobility operations; appointing feedback and coaching managers; and exploring compensation options tied to employee value and performance.
Mitre coordinated with OMB to convene the employment experts in a full-day symposium on Sept. 12.
The effort aligns with the federal workplace goal stated in the President’s Management Agenda.
