For government to succeed, it must be able to find and hire the skilled, capable and dedicated employees it needs.

Our workshops and webinars will help you get the right people in the right positions so that your agency can better achieve its mission. Designed for federal human resources personnel and hiring managers, these sessions address strategies for recruiting and hiring key talent.

Pathways to Success Workshop Series

The Pathways Programs provide federal agencies with a unique opportunity to position themselves as employers-of-choice for students and recent graduates, and fill workforce needs. Now that the regulations are in effect, agencies have limited time and, in many cases, resources to develop, implement and maximize the value of these initiatives.

The Partnership for Public Service will hosted a series of workshops and longer, in-depth group planning sessions (GPS) to help agencies establish and execute successful programs. These interactive events featured panelists and presenters from both the public and private sectors, including representatives from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, and will address four areas: program design and evaluation; recruitment and marketing; training and development; and assessment.
