Jeff Pon, former director of the Office of Personnel Management, discusses reform efforts in federal HR, and how the human capital community can focus on their mission.

Human capital management in the federal government has seen many attempts at reform. The competing schools of thought between slow and methodical reforms or large organizational changes may determine how the federal government presses on with their efforts. Jeff Pon, former director of the Office of Personnel Management, says that government HR needs to be streamlined, but still accomplish workforce goals.

 

“HR needs to work anywhere. You need to make sure you have the hiring policies, the recruitment, retention, the different types of policies that run HR effectively and efficiently. It follows the mission of the organization, it supports the leadership team. It makes sure that management can manage well,” Pon said. “In HR and the organizations, it can’t be an impediment to getting the mission done and sometimes the bureaucracy of how we operate and haven’t revise the rules have hindered that.”
