As the federal workforce continues to struggle with reduced budgets, attacks on pay and benefits, furloughs caused by sequestration, and increased demand for service, federal managers find themselves faced with the task of engaging the workforce, ensuring federal department and agency missions and goals are met on a daily basis. However, as the characteristics of the workforce changes, managers are finding the traditional ways of accomplishing tasks are not as efficient as they once were.
Federal Managers Association (FMA) National President Patricia Niehaus will testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Federal Workforce, U.S. Postal Service and the Census on Tuesday, July 15, to discuss the management within the federal workforce, including challenges frontline managers face. Niehaus will testify on the state of the General Schedule system, the need for managerial training, and the extension of the probationary period.
The hearing will begin at 10:00 am in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2145. A copy of Niehaus' full submitted testimony, along with her oral statement, will be available on FMA's website Tuesday afternoon at www.fedmanagers.org.
