TALENT MANAGEMENT STRATEGY: IMPROVING AGENCY AND EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE FROM HIRE TO RETIRE
The Human Capital Institute reports that 60 percent of the government workforce and 90 percent of its senior leadership are currently eligible to retire. HR staff must manage the transition in a majority of their workforce in the coming decade and meet demands to improve efficiencies, share information, and integrate processes across departments and jurisdictional boundaries. At the same time, many state and local governments have expensive legacy technologies that aren’t adaptable to modern needs. The ideal solutions include cloud-based technology to effectively manage the full hire-to-retire lifecycle of the government employee base. A talent strategy with user-friendly, accessible information can help state and local government better serve employees and deliver more effective programs while improving organizational and employee performance. And, with multi-generational workers blending together, there has never been a more important time for government agencies to get strategic about the workforce.
