US Department of Education
The Department of Education is a leader in improving the quality of education and raising expectations of what students can accomplish. The Department has promised to leave no child behind in order to ensure that all Americans can use their knowledge and skills to lead productive lives, enhance communities, and participate fully in the economy. To achieve these goals, the Department of Education seeks to ensure: (1) that leadership roles and responsibilities are clearly defined and consistently communicated; (2) that future leaders are prepared to lead and manage the workforce; (3) that it can recruit, develop, retain and assign employees to achieve the most critical priorities; and (4) that it continues to strengthen the results-oriented culture of accountability. The human capital plan focuses on taking action-enterprise-wide. It creates a road map that focuses on human capital challenges, responsibilities, improvements and actions. Much of this success depends upon the Department's employees and how they are held accountable and rewarded for the results they produce. This document details the Department's human capital initiatives and explains how each one will support its mission and strategic goals. The initiatives include: (1) Establish Leadership Accountability for Human Capital Management; (2) Prepare Leaders to Lead and Manage the Department's Workforce; (3) Recruit, Develop and Assign Talent to Department of Education's Critical Priorities; and (4) Strengthen Results-Oriented Culture. Appended are: (1) Detailed Human Capital Management Implementation Plan September 2004; and (2) Methodology.
