As we work on fulfilling our personal New Year’s resolutions, it was good to hear from Federal workers across the government about what their hopes and expectations are for OPM in 2014.
Let me tell you about some of my priorities for the coming year and share one of your colleague’s stories that epitomizes the dedication and compassion of our Federal workforce.
2014 is going to be an exciting year at OPM. We have a dynamic new strategic plan in the works and our 100-day plan to modernize our IT systems is well underway.
This will also be a year that we champion the Federal workforce. As I travel around the country visiting Federal workers, I will be listening to them and sharing their accomplishments, their vision and their commitment to their communities and their country.
One of you has given me a perfect example.
In answering my call to share New Year’s resolutions, John Lee, an OPM colleague who works at our Boyers, Pa. facility, suggested that we all get more involved in the community, in helping our fellow citizens in need. John and some of his colleagues did more than just talk about such service; they embodied it over the Christmas holiday. Here’s John’s post:
In his memorandum six months ago on expanding national service, the President called on all Federal agencies to promote national service and volunteerism across the Federal government.
Employees like John and his colleagues embody that call. My thanks to the Boyers team for their service and thanks to John for sharing.
I appreciate all the responses to our call for New Year’s resolutions. Please keep your feedback coming. We want to hear from you on Facebook, Twitter or via email.
