Acting Office of Personnel Management Director Beth Cobert said that the agency aims to continue its focus on the recruiting and developing the talent of the federal workforce as the current administration nears its end in January 2017, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Tom Fox writes that the agency also looks to provide health benefits for its set of customers and develop new strategies to deliver sustainable and institutionalized services.

“People come to the public sector because they want to serve,” Cobert said in the interview with Fox.

“We’ve got to help people understand how they can do that,” she added.

Cobert noted that the office works to promote its “Hiring Excellence Campaign” designed to bring together human resource leaders to aid the development of new strategies that address applicant quality and diversity in the hiring process.
