Feds Feed Families 2012
In its fourth year and sponsored by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the Feds Feed Families campaign has kicked off this summer to support food banks around the National Capital Region. This program coordinates the efforts of Federal employees to donate non-perishable food and household items, especially while many children do not have the benefit of school nutrition programs during the summer months. For a list of most needed items, where to donate, and agency coordinators, please see www.fedsfeedfamilies. And if you are not a Federal employee but would like to help, feel free to give food, funds, or volunteer – for information see www.capitalareafoodbank.org.
Are You Getting the Results You Want From Your Remote Workforce?
There are spaces available in the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Managing the Flexible Workplace course designed to give you strategies to increase results and support flexible work arrangements. This course will give you the tools you need to manage performance, regardless of where the employee is located. During the course you will explore the drivers for the flexible workplace, learn guidelines and procedures for establishing flexible work arrangements in your work unit, understand the factors that create a performance-based, yet flexible, workplace, apply performance management principles and techniques for a results based workplace, and create specific strategies for applying learned techniques to your work place.
This course is designed for managers and supervisors who want to acquire tools, tips, and tactics to effectively manage nontraditional work arrangements.
The next course will take place at the Eastern Management Development Center, July 10 – 12, 2012. Additional information about this course and others can be found here.
