Human Resources and Security Specialists should use this tool to determine the correct investigation level for any covered position within the U.S. Federal Government.
One of the President’s highest management priorities is to make sure that all Federal employees have access to effective training. One way that OPM and the Chief Human Capital Officers Council are working together to support this priority is by sponsoring an interactive virtual human resources training conference on April 15 and 16.
The 2015 Virtual HR Training Conference’s theme is REDI for the Future. REDI stands for Recruitment, Engagement, Diversity, and Inclusion. To fully implement the new REDI Roadmap, HR professionals must continue to build, develop, and retain a mission-driven workforce. The skills you can learn and the connections you can make at the conference will help you begin to untie hiring knots, form strategic partnerships, and better use data to drive your decisions.
The conference features more than 40 sessions in tracks that break down the essential core competencies HR professionals need. The five topic areas are:
Federal HR specialists deal with challenges that are complex, numerous,
and ever-changing. The Virtual HR Training Conference is a unique
opportunity for the Federal human resources and human capital
communities to come together to identify critical issues and challenges,
to share ideas and best practices, and to offer strategies and
solutions across government.
Everyone benefits from training, regardless of their career stage. Through REDI, we want to ensure that Federal employees continue to be talented, well-trained, and engaged. The skills that you will develop, sharpen, and refine at the 2015 Virtual HR Training Conference are invaluable toward reaching that goal. Here’s how to sign-up.
Today General Services Administration Administrator Dan Tangherlini and I signed a Memorandum of Understanding that seals an important partnership that will give agencies a more efficient, more reliable, and more effective way to get the best available training and human capital resources to Federal employees.
Under this agreement, we are merging the breadth of GSA’s acquisition capabilities, tools and strategic sourcing experience with OPM’s expertise in human capital and training to form a more powerful Government solution. Our effort also is aligned with the President’s Management Agenda because it will achieve government-wide savings and efficiencies through Federal strategic sourcing. Through this effort, we will support Federal employees as they continue to provide excellent service to the American people.
This partnership acknowledges the changing Federal landscape. It recognizes OPM’s strategic goals, the current budgetary realities across government and the need to better support the mission of the Federal agencies that OPM serves.
One of my highest priorities as OPM Director is to support agencies in meeting their most challenging human capital needs, including the training and development of our Federal workforce. This partnership will help empower agencies to better accomplish that goal.
Since one of the roles of OPM is to assist the Federal agencies to develop their federal training and career development opportunities, this new partnership is just one way we are going to make that process more efficient, effective, and reliable for agencies. Federal employees must see a clear career path, and we must make sure agencies are providing training and mentoring. We must make sure that from resume to retirement, Federal employees have the processes in place to support their career development.
Through this agreement, OPM will be able to more effectively get the tools they need to fulfill their training and human capital needs. And ensuring that our workforce has what it needs to succeed is one of my highest priorities.
