WASHINGTON, DC - On Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 10:00 a.m., leaders from across the Federal government, including agency heads and Chief Human Capital Officers, will gather at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to share stories about how Federal agencies are taking down barriers to improve hiring within the Federal workforce.
Six months ago, President Obama directed all Federal agencies to modernize their hiring processes in order to reduce waste, improve the applicant experience, and better serve the American public. This included directives to reduce the time it takes to fill a vacancy, accept resumes, and eliminate archaic entry essays. Federal agencies are making substantial progress in implementing these changes, and several Agency heads will deliver brief remarks highlighting major improvements they have made in the hiring process.
