Are You Ready for the Next Government Shutdown? I was hoping to ignore the rumors and rumbling that we may actually be destined to repeat the lunacy of what took place two years ago. However, after hearing from several well-respected government advisors and consultants, it appears as if another shutdown may indeed be a possibility.
As economic cycles go, the last 18 months have been a time of change for any company doing business with the federal government. Budgets have been cut across the board, and it often feels like the government is trying to get the same services for a fraction of the cost. For those of us working in Talent Acquisition or Human Resources, the pressure to do more with less has never been more tremendous.
Last week I moderated a panel of rock star millennials at the Professional Services Council (PSC) annual conference. Kudos to Stan Soloway, CEO of PSC, and his amazing team for putting together such a high performing panel. Our panelists included: Greg Gershman, Principal and co-founder, Ad Hoc LLC; Dr. Courtney Kennedy, Vice President of Advanced Methods, Abt SRBI and Steve Ressler, Founder & President, GovLoop.com. We had such a dynamic conversation with over 300 attendees that I thought our conversation would make a great blog post.
