Federal News Radio's 8th Annual CHCO Survey

After more than 15 years of memos, policies, initiatives and discussions, chief human capital officers (CHCOs) remain as frustrated as ever by the federal hiring process. Monster Government Solutions underwrote Federal News Radio's 8th annual CHCO and deputy CHCO survey to gain insights into their workforce priorities and what they need to improve the federal hiring process. The survey revealed: 

  • Continued improvement of agency hiring is the #1 ranking priority, beating out 14 others
  • Hiring qualified candidates, HR technology systems, and using data to make HR decisions were the top 3 areas of biggest need for HR leaders (among 13)
  • Almost half the respondents said that past federal hiring initiatives (from 2008 to 2016) did not make a difference in improving the hiring process – and they explain why not
  • Private sector job sites were the most helpful among eight approaches agencies use to find qualified candidates
  • Many other perspectives on engagement, retention, onboarding, and civil service reform
