With a civilian workforce of close to 800,000 and 2.7 million active and reserve military, people are clearly DoD’s most important asset and their skills are vital in defending our nation’s interests. Strategically managing human capital is at the heart of DoD’s transformation effort and is critical to meeting future challenges.

To effective build and manage the workforce of tomorrow, DoD will need to develop the right mix of skills across the total force – active and reserve military, civilians and contractors – and align skills to emerging requirements. Human Capital Management for Defense 2007 is the most senior-level conference addressing these challenges, as well as key workplace transformation initiatives like the NSPS pay for performance system, and efforts to move towards common, cross-service pay and personnel systems.

In addition, HCMD 2007 sessions focus on:

Competency-based management
Leadership development
Recruitment and retention
Developing language and cultural skills among DoD’s military and civilian members to prepare for future conflicts
Measuring the effectiveness of training and learning in an organization
