I took a few days away from my regularly scheduled programming at the office to attend the Federal Workplace Conference and Expo.
The Federal Workplace Conference is becoming one of my favorite federal conferences. The topics are relevant, the presenters experts and session after session, the labor relations/employee relations monster in me was satisfied with expert opinions and current case law updates.
Knowing that technical expertise alone is not going to get us to where we need to go in facing the challenges of declining budgets, increasing workloads, an aging workforce and outdated or inadequate human resources systems and policies*, a human capital management (HCM) track was added to the sessions. I had the opportunity to work with Dan Gephart, Editorial Director, LRP Publications/ cyberFEDS® in developing the HCM track.
As a speaker and attendee, I can say that the planning and execution of this conference was first class. I'd like to thank Dan, his team and LRP Publications for producing the event and for the opportunity to participate.
