As we celebrate Memorial Day with family and friends, I’d like to take this opportunity to pause and remember those who have fallen in service to their country. During my 33 years in the United States Navy, I lost friends and comrades. So this day serves as a special reminder to me that we honor their memories through our own service to our country.
Our Federal workforce is talented, passionate, and creative. To harness this spirit of ingenuity, we created the Lab@OPM to help agencies translate the creativity of their employees into innovative action. A recent project with Food and Nutrition Services at the United States Department of Agriculture shows how the Lab@OPM can bring fresh ideas to life.
I was honored to take part in a roundtable discussion with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders while visiting San Francisco this past week. As I mentioned earlier this month, AAPI Heritage Month gives us an opportunity to celebrate the growing AAPI population in the United States.
During my visit to the West Coast this week, I had the pleasure of speaking with the attendees of OPM’s Federal Internships and Career Expo in Seattle. This event was the first of its kind. I’m thrilled that OPM was able to co-host the expo with the Federal Executive Board and the University of Washington.
OPM has issued the 2015 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey.
