The Technology Agenda Tuesday, March 2

The Defense Agenda Wednesday, March 3

The State/Local Agenda Thursday, March 4

The Trump administration was characterized by record turnover and high vacancy rates in leadership posts and deep skepticism about the career workforce. After a turbulent transition, it is vital that the new administration take steps to revitalize the career civil service. So what does Biden’s workforce plan entail? How can new presidential appointees leverage the expertise and experience of federal employees to successfully implement the administration’s priorities? On this first day of The New Agenda digital summit, join Government Executive and hear from federal managers and executives on the future of the federal workforce under President Biden.

The return to the workplace hinges on the efficient management of processes that we never dreamed would be part of our daily workplace life – vaccine administration, contact tracing, PPE inventory and supply chain management, phased return to office, desk spacing and more. These processes require a high level of coordination and communication across operational functions, as well as a plan to digitally transform your organization. COVID-19 has shown that agencies must be able to provide their employees the right experience anywhere and ensure exceptional customer service with connected digital workflows under any condition. This session will discuss how to enable this coordination with a service-focused, digital-enabled approach.
