As public sector employees emerge from a post-COVID world, they face persistent uncertainties as to the future of the workforce and their place within. Though progress has been made to revive and reimagine the future of the workplace, technical and personal questions remain on what exactly lies ahead for those working in this crucial sector.

In this forum, GovExec welcomes you to a day-long exploration into this complex issue, where we’ll examine the past, present, and future of public sector employment. Covering everything from management and technology to benefits, pay, and DEIA initiatives, we’ll hear wide perspectives from the public and private sector on what it means to be a civil servant in these turbulent times, and learn how leaders are developing solutions for the challenges that lie ahead.

Session Highlights include:

  • The New Normal: Examining Hybrid Work Trends in the Government: Hybrid work is here to stay, and provides government with significant benefits, from improved flexibility, collaboration and recruiting to bolstered productivity and long-term mission effectiveness. As agencies settle into this new normal, how are leaders adapting to changing needs around collaboration, security, clear and equitable policies, and engagement for the hybrid workforce?
  • Hiring, Tech & Data-Driven Decision Making: Top CHCO Priorities: From attracting and retaining talent, maintaining workforce engagement, implementing diversity and inclusion initiatives, modernizing human capital technology, and navigating both internal and external stakeholder relationships, all amidst complex policies and regulations, government chief human capital officers (CHCOs) have a critical but challenging role. 
  • Management Strategies for Agency Leaders: In order to set their workforces up for mission success, agency leaders must balance competing priorities, maintain accountability and transparency, adapt to changing political environments, ensure effective collaboration, and align a diverse workforce around common goals.
  • DEIA in the Public Sector: Diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the public sector came into sharp focus with President Biden’s 2021 executive order on the topic. Since then, agencies across government have challenged themselves to prioritize the issue and identify its unique applications for their mission area. Two years later, how are these directives progressing?
  • Securing the Workforce: Examining Remote Work Security Challenges: As endpoints multiplied and networks expanded geographically alongside the explosion of remote work, existing challenges around protecting sensitive data, ensuring compliance, maintaining secure communications, and managing and securing devices came into acute focus. 
  • Funding the Future: Exploring Workforce Modernization: Rigid and outdated hiring, pay, and performance policies and practices have often hampered government’s ability to achieve its critical missions and provide services to the public. Facing historic lows in unemployment and an incredibly competitive labor market, government leaders must prioritize workforce modernization to ensure their agencies have the right workforce to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Where should they begin?
