Can government be cool enough to attract talented young people AND keep them on the job?
In a report for Federal News Radio — “The Need for the Next Generation” — I highlight what some agencies are doing to recruit and retain young people. (Special thanks to Mr. GovLoop Steve Ressler for being interviewed for the series.)
– OPM gives a preview of the ‘innovation lab’ to be built in the agency’s sub-basement
– NASA outlines how it revamped its onboarding program
– GAO talks about on-campus recruiting
– A photo slideshow tour of the VA Acquisition Academy, plus its center’s philosophy on training
The report touches on just a few examples of ways agencies are trying to make federal government cool again.
What are some ways your agency are bringing on the next generation of feds?
