The crisis in government talent management is undeniable
Herndon, VA (Vocus) February 23, 2010
Today, in response to the human capital crisis unfolding in the United States government, a consortium of organizations, including the Center for Human Capital Innovation (CHCI) and MBO Partners, launched the Portal for Talent Management in Government at TMGov.org.
Destined to become the leading online resource for government talent management, TMGov.org will bring together research, training, webcasts, and live human capital management events. The first webcast, The Power of Social Network Analysis for Government Talent Management Transformation, will be March 23, 2010, featuring Professor Rob Cross of the University of Virginia and Ray Horoho of the United States Army.
Beyond HR, the Portal for Talent Management in Government will investigate contingent workforce management, including the use of independent contractors. Over 80% of the government’s work is produced by contractors, yet too often, government talent management executives are ill-equipped to manage the contract talent workforce effectively.
“The crisis in government talent management is undeniable," said Allan Zeman, President of CHCI. “For example, 90% of government senior executives will be eligible to retire within five years. Federal budgets for
government talent will likely be cut in the coming decade rather than expanded, while demands with an aging population, global instability, and ongoing wars - continue to grow."
The other consortium members -- Saba, TMP Government, Taleo, and TAPFIN – join MBO Partners and CHCI to fund TMGov.org and advise its direction. The group also formed a Human Capital Council with government and non-profit leaders, experts from academia, and HR executives.
