The White House released a set of fiscal year 2015 budget documents Monday that propose adding up to 14,000 new workers to the existing federal workforce in the next fiscal year, GovExec reported Monday.
Eric Katz writes the Obama administration wants to increase the number of employees at the Treasury by 7,400 and boost staffing levels at the Department of Veteran Affairs by 2,200.
The 2015 budget plan also seeks to expand the Securities and Exchange Commission‘s workforce to 4,700, a 12 percent increase over current SEC workforce levels, according to the report.
Katz writes the White House urged agencies to utilize the federal employee viewpoint survey and adopt data-driven methods to keep staff members engaged at work.
GovExec reports the Obama administration also seeks to refresh training and hiring processes for Senior Executive Service members.
