Reskilling the federal workforce is a key part of the President’s Management Agenda, and it’s a topic that has continued to resurface during this year’s three previous GovExec LIVE events.
Since the management agenda was released, the Office of Management and Budget has outlined key strategies for reskilling the workforce, including identifying opportunities to incorporate automation, focusing on emerging and mission-critical skills, reskilling and redeploying employees to high value work activities and creating career paths in the government that will best fit workforce planning needs.
In the fourth installment of the GovExec LIVE series, we sat down with leaders from across the government to discuss strategies for reskilling the workforce, the risk and rewards associated with changing agency culture, automation and the technology behind the future workforce.
