The Biden administration’s budget request shows the White House wants to blow up hiring all across government. Human capital pros worry the hiring process that isn’t working well now could make the administration’s plan a little more complicated.

  • Jeri Buchholz, former Chief Human Capital Officer at NASA, said Congress does not have the bandwidth for substantial legal reform in the near future, so agencies must work within the current system to improve hiring.
  • Michael Rigas, former Acting Director of the Office of Personnel Management, said he believes strong leadership and focus on mission outcomes is more important than making government bigger.
  • Buchholz said the Office of Personnel Management could implement regulations to make it easier for alumni to return to federal government service, such as providing credit for private sector work so employees do not have to come back at the same grade level as before.
