Serco is your trusted partner to develop the environment needed to enable your workforce to succeed Human Capital & Organization Transformation Solutions
“In a time of unprecedented technological advances and global change, Federal leaders, managers, and front-line employees must not only be aware of the changes to the work, workforce, and workspace, but must also be able to identify weak signals, anticipate trends, and plan for the inevitable changes.”--2022 Federal Workforce Priorities Report
Innovative approaches to enable Federal agencies to achieve their human capital goals
Since the implementation of the Government Performance Modernization Act in 2010 and through multiple regulations issued since, agencies have been under increasing pressure to improve accountability and efficiency of their human resources services, connect performance to Agency strategic goals and report on progress as part of the overall agency performance reporting. This requires comprehensive program assessments, development of Human Capital Strategic Plans and Human Capital Operating Plans, and systemic improvements to multiple programs, while continuing to provide the vital services their customers rely on.
These challenges were occurring against a backdrop of transformational change in the workplace that was dramatically accelerated and influenced by the pandemic, exacerbating the challenges Federal agencies face in recruiting and retaining top talent. Advances in technology, including artificial intelligence, increased prevalence of remote and hybrid work arrangements, rising wages and record low unemployment require agencies to transform their human capital systems, processes, and strategies to keep pace with the change and continue to provide the people and skills needed for their agencies to meet evolving mission requirements.
