The feds rock
Bet you don't hear that very often.
Surfing around today, I came across one of those resources that you hit yourself for not finding sooner.
It's IPMA-HR's Federal Section.
"Wow, Bryan, that sounds fascinating," you're thinking. Well, check it out, that's all I ask. The page has links to a variety of excellent presentations including:
Attracting, Maintaining and Motivating the Best and the Brightest
Attracting Talent - A 21st Century Approach
That last presentation has within it an example of job preview videos created by OPM that are well worth a look. These types of videos are common in the private sector, much less among government agencies--and it's unfortunate that more organizations aren't taking advantage of this technology.
So kudos to the Federal Section for offering such a wealth of information and kudos to OPM for the example they continue to set.
Next up: I had a very interesting demo this afternoon from HireVue, so I will be posting about that shortly!
