Abstract:

The demographic composition of the national workforce has undergone significant change over the last three decades. Todays workforce is increasingly comprised of more women, minorities, and older workers. These trends are expected to continue well into the 21st Century. The impact of changing national workforce demographics will be particularly felt in the public sector because the federal workforce is already disproportionately comprised of older workers and minorities when compared to the civilian labor force. Its important to identify changing civilian workforce demographics within the federal government and explore the implications of these changes on managing the future workplace. What conclusions can we draw from these projected trends How will the needs, preferences and expectations of the future federal workforce differ from todays civil servant What can leaders do today to identify, understand, and manage the growing workforce diversity anticipated in the future By understanding the implications of changing demographic patterns, the federal government can conduct workforce planning needed to remain a competitive employer, maximize workforce productivity, and enhance recruitment and retention efforts.
