Nick Sinai, venture partner at Insight Venture Partners, discusses the ways that federal agencies are looking to modernize the hiring process and some successful examples.


The Office of Personnel Management is looking to implement a more agile hiring process for federal workers. The new hiring strategies are designed to bring in talent from certain specialties. According to Nick Sinai, venture partner at Insight Venture Partners, the U.S. Digital Service and 18F already have some of these ideas in place to get private sector talent. “These are units that were designed to appeal to technologists, to product managers, to user researchers to bring talented folks in to serve a tour of duty and to work alongside talented people in the agencies, in the White House… to solve real important problems,” said Sinai. “…There’s a lot of friction associated with hiring. I think any conversation about innovation usually goes back to hiring or procurement, and how do we improve these in the federal government? Hiring was a big one. I remember, the U.S. Digital Service in their early days, one of the things they had to do was go back and figure out how to fix hiring for them. Within the authorities and laws that they were operating under, how were they able to attract great talent and hire them in a short period of time.”
