Assessment tools used in the hiring process seem to be hindering government’s progress.
I reported on the Brookings event Christine mentions above, here. During the discussion, Dave Uejio, president of Young Government Leaders said non-profits, such as Teach for America, are eating government’s lunch when it comes to recruitment/hiring. He pointed to the superior assessment tools used by the organization.
“I think across government, we really severely under resource not only how we do assessments, but really what a good assessment looks like, I think, is somewhat in dispute,” said Uejio.
