The Office of Personnel Management has expanded a program to help federal agencies analyze their workforce data and use that information to measure their progress in meeting human resource management goals, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
Jack Moore writes that HR personnel from 16 agencies participated in review sessions under the OPM’s HRstat initiative during 2013.
Katherine Archuleta, OPM director, said that eight more agencies have signed up for the program and those organanizations are slated to complete their HR data analyses by the end of 2014, according to the station.
“Going forward, OPM, in conjunction with the Chief Human Capital Officers Council, will develop internal benchmarks of HRstat metrics to identify key strategic and operational HR metrics all agencies will collect and share,” Archuleta told agencies in a memo obtained by Federal News Radio.
OPM has scheduled a fiscal year 2015 government-wide implementation of HRstat.
Moore writes that the agency’s goal is to decrease the number of reports that HR departments must produce annually.
