FMA WELCOMES MSPB'S RECOMMENDATIONS AND DISCUSSION ON UNDER-PERFORMING SUPERVISORS - January 11, 2018
Agencies Aren't Catching Bad Supervisors Early Enough
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
Greg Stanford, FMA’s director of government affairs, said his group has received feedback from members only about the new employee probation, not the supervisory trial period. Still, he said FMA welcomed MSPB’s report.
“FMA advocates for excellence in public service, so we welcome MSPB’s findings and look forward to its forthcoming recommendations regarding barriers and other hindrances from taking action against underperforming supervisors, provided they protect individuals’ due process at every step,” Stanford said. He added his organization hoped the report would highlight the importance of and need for investment in supervisory training.
