People who run HR in agencies, the Chief Human Capital Officers, have a lot of the responsibility for helping ensure an engaged and enthusiastic workforce. Each year, Grant Thornton and the Partnership for Public Service survey federal CHCOs. John Palugta, vice president for policy at the partnership, joined Tom and Emily on the Federal Drive to discuss the highlights of the survey.
