Public Sector HR - Government Talent Management

Cornerstone for Public Sector

The network of local, state and federal public sector organizations comprises the largest employment sector in the United States and in many countries around the world. Managing the learning and performance of this vital pool of talent is critical and challenging.

Specific to the Public Sector, 60 percent of people in the workforce are eligible to retire in the next 10 years, and 40 percent are likely to retire when they first become eligible. An estimated 18.5 percent of the federal government workforce — about 290,000 employees — will retire by the end of fiscal 2010.

Until now, the country has not faced such a dramatic loss of its most experienced employees while experiencing a talent deficit as they look to replace and retain workers with the necessary skills.

Preparing for Talent Readiness Challenges in the Public Sector

Agencies can and should take steps today to prepare for the projected talent crisis. Organizations in the public sector are re-evaluating their strategies for strengthening the workforce, striving to achieve success with developing and retaining talent. These organizations should pursue strategies that deliver long-term results, minimize the loss of critical talent and, ultimately, save money.
