Federal Employees News Digest : July 29, 2013
serve honorably, whether or not they are called for deployment,” said Donnelly, adding, “Yet currently, some members of the reserve components cannot qual- ify to access preference points when applying for federal employment.” Currently, members of the reserve com- ponents do not qualify for veterans’ prefer- ence if they have only served in a training capacity and have never been deployed. According to the sponsors, the National Guard Bureau estimates that about 159,400 Army National Guard sol- diers (44 percent of the total force) and 73,700 Air National Guard airmen (70 percent of the total force) serve without having qualified for veterans’ preference. Under the bill, a qualified member of the reserve component would be able to claim a “tiered” three-, four- or five-point prefer- ence depending on their length of service. Rep. Tim Walz (Minn.-D) is introduc- ing a companion bill in the House.

The report, “Building the Leadership Bench: Developing a Talent Pipeline for the SES,” is based on interviews with federal employees in the Senior Executive Service. The report notes that in just the next half-decade, about two-thirds of SES employees will be eligible to retire. In the face of this potential wave of retirements and “the complex chal- lenges confronting our government,” the report says, “the need for strong leaders to fill these executive positions is critical.” PPS co-developed the report with the consulting firm McKinsey & Company. It lays out “four phases of a cohesive SES pipeline-development strategy” along with case studies exploring agen- cies that already “excel in their execu- tion of one or more of these phases.” The report is available at http://our- publicservice.org/OPS/publications/ viewcontentdetails.php?id=227.
