Heather Davis, director for change management and employee experience at KGO, discusses ways to “Amazon-proof” the tech workforce at agencies and contractors.


Amazon’s second HQ in Arlington won’t be arriving for a few years, but the company’s presence may pose problems for federal talent acquisition. How can agencies keep their competitiveness in the area when the biggest name in tech moves into town? Heather Davis, director for change management and employee experience at KGO, says that the key is to plan.   “Any organization can achieve this. It starts with really reimagining your purpose. It’s no longer enough to have mission, vision, values, and espouse this stuff without putting your money where your mouth is. Demonstrating the attitudes, behaviors and beliefs that support that culture.” Davis said. “A part of that has to do with the culture assessment and that’s the starting point… It starts with things as simple as looking at your technology, looking at your physical workplace, and looking at the core competencies of your leaders, looking at where you are currently, looking at where you aspire to be and then developing a road map to get there.”
