WASHINGTON, April 12, 2006 – The Chief of Naval Personnel’s Civilian Workforce Analysis Division within the Civilian Community Management Branch, and Strategic Planning and Analysis will sponsor the first-ever Combined Workforce Conference at the Fairview Park Marriott Hotel in Falls Church, Va., April 25-27.

The theme for this event will be “Enhancing the Navy Workplace: A Competency Focused Performance Based Culture.”

The conference is open to civilian and uniformed members involved in the research and management of the Navy’s manpower and personnel development.

"The issues that will be addressed at the Combined Workforce Conference are the very issues we're working on today in the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense."

One of the main goals of the conference is to bring together industry’s leading analysts to explore the potential crossover of ongoing research in manpower, personnel, training and education.

“The issues that will be addressed at the Combined Workforce Conference are the very issues we're working on today in the Department of the Navy and the Department of Defense," said Cyndi Mays, co-director, Civilian Workforce Analysis Division. "The conference should be of tremendous value to all in attendance."

For the first time, this year’s conference will combine the Department of the Navy’s premier Civilian Community Management Symposium with Strategic Planning and Analysis. This combination will integrate both the research and application elements of Navy personnel development.

“This combined conference will highlight Navy Leadership sharing its vision of the future Navy Workforce,” said Elizabeth Persell, co-director, Civilian Workforce Analysis Division. “Attendees will be able to participate in a variety of breakout sessions focused on leading edge research and current Navy issues."

Scheduled speakers include Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. J. C. Harvey Jr.; Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Manpower and Reserve Affairs William A. Navas; and Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Dr. David S. Chu.

The Partnership for Pubic Service, a nonprofit organization dedicated to revitalizing federal employment, will make a presentation on “pay for performance begins with performance management,” which offers a bridge into the presentation on the National Security Personnel System by its Program Executive Officer, Mary Lacey.

Industry professionals from Ninth House, Skillsnet, IBM Center for the Business of Government, ICF, The Performance Institute, LMI, and the Human Performance Center also join the list of presenters in sharing the conference theme of “Enhancing the Navy Workplace” as they speak on workforce integration, competency management, and performance-based workforce.

In addition to the plethora of speakers, informative topics and breakout sessions, the Adm. J.M. Boorda Award for Outstanding Integration of Analysis and Policy-Making will be presented to honor those who have made a significant contribution towards Navy Personnel Readiness either through the conduct of research and analysis, or direct application of analytic results and efforts.
