Our Director Director's Blog

This week more than 200 SES members were sworn-in as the newest career leaders of the Federal government. I had the honor of speaking to them at their orientation about the opportunities and responsibilities at the mantle of leadership.

The SES corps is the mobile, agile and strong leadership of the Federal service. In every agency, every department of the Federal government, the SES execute the challenging missions of the government and ensure the highest level of performance from our world class 21st Century Federal workforce.

I challenged these new leaders sworn in this week to aim high, to dream the impossible and to collaborate with their colleagues at every level. I stressed that true leadership also means extending a hand to the next generation of SES members. We need a bench of leadership, and it must be rich with the diversity of the country.

Even as these new SES leaders assume their responsibilities, the search for the next SES class has begun. With the President’s Management Council, I’m working to see how we can improve on the processes and procedures for recruiting, hiring and evaluating SES members.

So I congratulate our new SES class and look forward to the great work they will do for the American people.
