Building the workforce for tomorrow: A shared responsibility
The Reskilling Toolkit contains information, guidance, tips, and resources on how to reskill and/or upskill employees impacted by major workforce changes, such as automation. The toolkit aligns to the Human Capital Framework (HCF), which guides agencies through the four different systems of the human capital management life cycle (see Appendix A). Continuous reskilling and upskilling contributes to fostering a culture of continuous learning. By actively managing the workforce and developing agile operations, agencies better position themselves for effective and efficient achievement of their mission and goals. As technology continues to advance, digitization and automation will eliminate or lead to changes of work roles or tasks within positions. For example, some of the top labor-intensive Federal activities with automation potential are: Retrieving and Synthesizing Data; Providing some Customer Service Activities ; Performing some Administrative Activities The purpose of this Toolkit is to assist agencies with meeting their President’s Management Agenda’s goal œDeveloping a Workforce for the 21st Century, while adhering to the Merit System Principles. It serves as a resource for agency leaders, managers, supervisors and employees who are involved in planning, implementing, and/or receiving reskilling or upskilling efforts. The information in this toolkit is a compilation of the U. S. Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) guidance and tools, in collaboration with agency partners, such as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), National Science Foundation (NSF), and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
