As the role of HR is evolving, CHCOs are no longer just administrators of HR programs, but are integral to achieving mission critical goals. As drivers of people-related systems and strategy, agencies are increasingly dependent on CHCOs to ensure department objectives and Human Capital agenda are aligned. Lacey Dingman, CHCO at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), will share how teamwork and an iterative approach has helped to modernize the SEC’s strategic talent management roadmap and implementation by:
• Approaching talent management strategy in a comprehensive manner
• Recognizing the interrelations of various HR processes

James and Carrie will walk through:
•Determine workforce needs through competency models and proficiency targets
•Analyze current workforce through competency self-assessment

To lead this workshop, contact sponsorship director Mark Barrett at mark.barrett@wbresearch.com or 646-200-7494.

There’s no doubt that the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) provides a treasure-trove of meaningful data that, if extracted in a timely manner, can result in the strategic creation of employee-based initiatives and cost-saving efficiencies. At NIDDK we have designed an innovative, no-cost, Excel-based tool that captures OPM-defined focus areas and automates FEVS analysis. EVS ART has generated excitement at the NIH and we’d like to further distribute it to benefit all federal agencies, HHS and beyond – such as with our fellow HCMG attendees:
•Is an easy five step excel based tool capturing OPM-defined focus results tool
•Reduces FEVS analysis processing time from hours/days/weeks to mere minutes
•Aids in the timely strategic creation of employee-based initiatives
