Thanks for your insights John. Quite a compelling statistic there that I had not seen before regarding the % of millenials employed in the Federal sector compared to those in the Private Sector. Simply put this is completely unsustainable, and will have an enormous impact on an agencies ability to deliver on their mission in the future.
Personally, I think one of the challenges here is in getting the simplest information to the decision makers regarding the demographic dynamics at play for *their* agency. We are continuing to review this point with people we are speaking with, and find the response is overwhelmingly positive. If we can set up the framework to provide on-going real time delivery of information about their people, we then have a basis to implement new initiatives with specific measurable outcomes.
It's a fundamental (albeit challenging) starting point, but a starting point that becomes a platform for a lot more.
