SUBJECT: Workforce Transformation Planning Update
As you may recall, last year the Agency prescribed a variety of Workforce Transformation actions such as buyouts, early outs, and job fairs to help each Center achieve its transformation goals. All of these efforts, and many more, are aimed at reshaping the NASA workforce to implement the President's Vision for Space Exploration and elements of the Presidential Management Agenda to assure NASA remains a high performing organization.
As I conveyed in my e-mail to you on August 29, my commitment is to communicate openly and to the fullest extent possible to all employees during these challenging times. Therefore, I am providing this update regarding the Center's Workforce Transformation Activities to date:
All civil servants are invited to attend one of the OPM RIF educational briefings in the DEB Auditorium on September 26, 27, or 28, 2005. More information about the sessions will appear soon on Today@Glenn.
The briefings will provide important information on how the RIF process operates. If you have questions that are not covered in the OPM Briefings, you are encouraged to discuss these issues with your supervisor and visit http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/OHR/Transformation/, GRC's Workforce Transformation Web site, for regular updates. The OPM Employee's Guide to Reduction in Force, also located on this Web site, is another excellent resource to answer ques-tions you may have. We will continue to update you as we receive additional information from Headquarters. In the meantime, please plan to attend one of the OPM education sessions and ask questions.
Lastly, to keep employees informed on the Agency's Workforce Transformation and other transitional activities, Glenn's DLT Meeting Notes and Today@Glenn will include a "Transfor-mation Corner" section to keep employees informed on changes as they occur. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding during this challenging time for the Agency.
