Air Force hosts military, civilian Workforce Summit

WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Air Force Manpower, Personnel and Services is hosting the first Workforce Summit at the General Jacob E. Smart Conference Center on Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, Aug. 29-30, 2017.

The two-day event is intended for Air Force subject matter experts to examine, discuss and propose solutions to challenges facing the Air Force when it comes to recruiting, developing, retaining and transitioning both military and civilian Airmen.

"In order to produce ready, capable and lethal Airmen, our corporate human resources systems must be agile, efficient, consistent and transparent across the talent management life cycle," said Lt. Gen. Gina Grosso, the Deputy Chief of Staff for Manpower, Personnel and Services at Headquarters U.S. Air Force.

Attendees will participate in group presentations, discussion panels with subject matter experts and individual breakout sessions. Participants, such as Gen. Stephen Wilson, Air Force vice chief of staff and other senior Air Force leaders, are anticipated to focus on human resources programs and policy challenges pertaining to information technology, civilian hiring, officer performance management and Air Force manpower requirements, among other topics.

“Our vision is to create an agile and inclusive talent management enterprise that more deliberately develops people, makes the right decisions at the right time, and helps inform budget and planning decisions,” said Grosso. “This Workforce Summit is an opportunity to focus on a few major gaps in the talent management lifecycle and make decisions for reform with input from senior Air Force leadership.”
