The Center for Organizational Excellence, Inc. (COE) announced today its sponsorship of the 2013 Human Capital Management Government (HCMG) Training Conference, which took place December 3 – 5 at the Sheraton Pentagon City in Arlington, VA. This conference brings together agency leaders and human capital practitioners committed to improving the efficiency, effectiveness, and overall performance of our government.

HCMG is the premiere forum for leaders in human capital organization and management. For eight years, this conference has provided an interactive forum for demonstrating solutions and delivering actionable content that helps human capital practitioners improve their agency’s outcomes. This is the fifth year that COE has sponsored the event.

COE’s president and chief executive officer, Steve Goodrich, delivered the opening remarks and served as the chairperson on the panel “Federal Evolution in Turbulent Times,” which discussed the factors preventing agencies from making the changes they know they need to make and how some agencies have been effective in creating change.

“It is a difficult time for federal employees, who are demotivated by budget cuts, hiring freezes, furloughs, and fragmented, partisan leadership,” said Steve. “But now more than ever, federal employees need to recognize that the power to transform government isn’t in Congress or agency leadership, or the person in the cube next to you-the power is in you.”

COE’s sponsorship of HCMG 2013 reflects the company’s conviction that forums like these are critical to equipping agency leaders and human capital practitioners with the tools and resources necessary to build a resilient and effective workforce.
