Denise Turner Roth, acting administrator of the General Services Administration, has moved to sustain the agency’s focus on talent development through a newly implemented workforce program, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.
Michael O’Connell writes GSA recently carried out the Total Workforce initiative intended to attract new individuals and train them for future leadership roles.
“So, we are being deliberate about recruiting and bringing individuals in and not just hiring at the high level of the organization,” Roth told Federal Drive’s Tom Temin.
Roth also urged college graduates who seek the opportunity to see across government agencies to consider joining GSA, according to the report.
O’Connell writes the agency has implemented new staffing plans that aim to keep track of GSA’s hiring milestones through 2015 and beyond.
Roth said GSA is targeting 200 positions for the scheme’s first pass and individuals would receive support through the transition under a wraparound program, the station reports.
She added that the agency plans to use the Office of Personnel Management‘s tools to assess its hiring methods, Federal News Radio reports.
