Straight Talk About the Approaching Crisis in U.S. Government Agencies and How to Overcome the Challenges

In the next three to five years, according to data from the White House, almost 30% of current senior executive federal service workers will be eligible for retirement.

The pandemic and the very nature of how we work have changed the environment in many federal agencies. Large numbers of these senior-level employees will take advantage of this opportunity to retire. These employees have given years of outstanding service to the people of the United States. Replacing this senior- level experience presents a massive challenge for U.S. government agencies. Plus, and most importantly, they must equip freshly minted leaders with the skills they need to be successful in their new roles. These replacements will need to live up to the standards set by their predecessors and even exceed those standards so federal agencies continue to function and thrive.
