Abstract : Federal Workforce Quality: Measurement and Improvement is the report of the Advisory Committee on Federal Workforce Quality Assessment. The committee was a group of 23 private and public sector executives, union presidents, and academicians who met over a two-year period to examine the status of the Federal Government's workforce quality assessment program and to provide recommendations for improvements. The report recommends 14 actions that the committee believes will help identify the strengths and weaknesses in the workforce and lead to improvements in the products and services Government workers provide the public. Among the key recommendations is a call for increased emphasis on customers by clearly identifying those whom an agency serves and then setting explicit standards for production and quality. The committee also proposed a model for measuring workforce quality that takes into account the attributes workers bring to the job, the work environment, how the organization operates, and the interactions of all these factors. Further recommendations advise the Government to continue data collection and analysis over time and suggest formation of a permanent council to coordinate the efforts of all the agencies engaged in workforce quality assessment projects.
