Industry Insights: Summertime, and the Learning is Easy — with HR Summer Camp for the Public Sector

Public sector HR professionals face challenges today that have only intensified since the onset of the pandemic. Employee expectations have shifted, requiring government and education HR leaders to shift along with them — not only to ensure that essential roles are filled and services are delivered, but also to become a company where people aspire to work. 
 
Complicating this shift are issues common to the public sector: Most government and education organizations can’t compete with larger private-sector salaries, often lag behind in technology, and have a reputation for taking too long to hire. 
 
And although the Great Resignation has led many people to re-evaluate their career goals and look to the public sector for more fulfilling, service-driven roles, change is still necessary if public organizations are to successfully execute on and advance their missions. 
 
Effecting this change begins with HR leaders having a seat at the leadership table to ensure their voices are heard in important workforce decisions — especially those around providing employees with the best work experience possible. HR leaders must be able to make a compelling business case to their finance and IT colleagues for adding human capital management (HCM) solutions to their existing systems, to ensure this goal becomes a reality. 
 
To make your case, you’ll need to be fully up to speed on your key issues. For example, what are your main obstacles to finding and keeping top talent today? What is your plan for creating a culture where employees feel appreciated and supported and one that incorporates diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging policies? And how can you leverage technology to help your people deliver more effectively on your organization’s strategic initiatives? 
 
If you’re wondering how to answer these questions, the upcoming UKG HR Summer Camp can help! This new learning adventure — kicking off on August 3 — is a great way to stay ahead of current HR trends in the public sector, discover valuable, actionable insights to help you best articulate the challenges you face, and find the right technology solutions to meet your needs. 
 
With learning tracks for higher education, K-12, and state and local government HR professionals, the UKG HR Summer Camp features one activity per week for three weeks, delivered via email, with learning and expertise on the topics you care about most.  

  • Higher education activities will explore new research on technology as a strategic HR partner, the future of AI in the public sector, and the changing workforce dynamics in higher ed.  
  • K-12 activities will focus on how technology can help districts succeed, why a total approach to HCM makes sense for schools, and how AI will influence the future of the public sector.  
  • State and local government activities will dive into navigating the new world of employee expectations, the future of AI in the public sector, and how to build a great workplace.
