For all employees of the General Services Administration
Note: I do not work for this organization nor are they a client., I thought someone might know someone to nominate or to pass this along to.
Government employees accomplish much every day; their vital contributions often unseen by the American people they so ably serve. As former chairman of the Federal Reserve Paul Volcker has said, “Somebody has to keep the air clean and the environment safe for the next generation. Somebody has to respond to the more mundane, but nonetheless sometimes challenging assignments of keeping government working effectively and efficiently if self-government is to work at all.” Our government’s capability to meet these and many other important challenges is under threat. A federal workforce crisis is sapping government’s greatest resource–its cadre of talent. With huge numbers of highly knowledgeable people soon to retire, the government faces its biggest recruitment challenge in decades. Good government requires good people. By honoring excellence in the federal workforce, the Service to America Medals send a powerful message to the American people about the importance of a strong civil service and seek to inspire a new generation of Americans to public service.
Interesting Lara. I have been keenly aware of the growing skilled workforce shortage for industrial industry (maintenance workers, engineers, etc.) But it never crossed my mind other industries including the Government will be effected by the baby boomers retiring too. Looks like things are going to get a little more hectic here in the good ole USA. :>)
