As part of the National Academy of Public Administration’s (the Academy) ongoing series on enterprise risk management, a panel of federal executives discussed human capital management risks relating to employee engagement, training and development, and retention. This panel, brought together by the Academy in partnership with Ernst & Young LLP (EY) on April 23rd, 2015, provided a forum to raise awareness and share insights on managing human capital risk in the federal government.
“Assessing human capital risk is an important part of enterprise risk management. As a Congressionally-chartered research institution, the Academy was proud to be able to provide a ‘safe harbor’ for discussions like these,” said Academy President and CEO Dan G. Blair. “Assessing and containing risk in federal programs and activities is vitally important if we are to tackle the tough issues facing public administration today.”
