Personnel officials identify obstacles to federal hiring reforms
By Ed O'Keefe
President Obama's ambitious plans to reform the federal hiring process are in danger of being stalled by a corps of personnel staffers who are not equipped to do the job.
That's one jarring conclusion from 68 government chief human capital officers presented in a report that the Partnership for Public Service (PPS) planned to issue on Wednesday.
The "competency of HR workers" is one of seven "major obstacles to building a first-class federal workforce" identified by the officers, known as "CHCOs" (pronounced "chicos").
It's not that the human relations professionals are incompetent. They don't have the training or the technology needed to keep up with a quickly changing workplace.
