COE President Underscores Importance of Managing Talent

Rockville, Md. (January 31, 2013) - The Center for Organizational Excellence, Inc. (COE) today announced that president and chief executive officer, Steve Goodrich, will moderate a discussion at the upcoming Association of Management Consulting Firms (AMCF) roundtable on January 30, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. The title of the roundtable is "More Constraints and Less Money: Transforming the Federal Government's Human Capital Model."

"Ensuring that the right talent exists as both federal government employees and consultants serve the government during difficult times is essential. We cannot waste time, money or inefficiency. During tough budget times, every dollar and every hour has to count toward effective service, productivity and cost savings," said Steve Goodrich. "Having the right talent as a critical advantage is more important than ever right now."

All eyes are on improving government performance in the face of shrinking budgets and increased retirement of federal workers, making innovative ideas and ways of thinking about human capital invaluable. The purpose of this roundtable is to bring together leading experts, thinkers and practitioners to discuss the alignment between federal hiring needs and higher education programs; the federal government's approach to succession planning; the impacts of the new workforce issues and employment deals; and the importance of leadership during reductions in organization size.

As a trusted partner to the federal government, COE has a proven track record and reputation for human capital consulting thought leadership. The company's partnership and involvement with AMCF demonstrates our commitment to delivering cost-effective, customized human capital solutions to agencies in an effort to make them more efficient and effective in carrying out their mission.
