"Inspiring and Engaging a 

High-Performing 21st Century Workforce"

An FEI SES Onboarding Forum


To be notified when registration opens for the next offering of this Forum,  

This Forum was most recently offered in May 2019.


Even as the nature of work itself is changing, the Federal workforce in the 21st century is also changing as it becomes more multisector, multicultural, intergenerational, intergovernmental, international, and virtual. 

Federal Senior Executives lead America's workforce, continuously inspiring, engaging, and aligning employees to ensure mission success even in the midst of constant change.

When talent management is a strategic priority, senior leaders and executive leadership teams are building results-oriented cultures of engagement, accountability, and high performance.  Employees feel connected to the agency mission, are empowered to take charge of their careers, and have a laser focus on customer service and execution.  At the same time, senior leaders are shaping resilient human capital systems so that the agency is attracting, developing and retaining world-class talent to meet agency priorities efficiently and effectively.

    Inspiring and Engaging a High-Performing 21st Century Workforce is a Forum designed to help new Federal Senior Executives lead their most critical resource — people — strategically — with an enterprise mindset and change management toolkit suited to leveraging talent strategies in service to the American people.

    How You 
    Will Benefit
