Day One Talent Hub
People are policy.
The Day One Talent Hub is our initiative to help federal agencies identify and access world-class technical talent to advance progress on priorities where science and technology can make a dramatic impact.
Meeting the Moment
Now more than ever, technical expertise in government can make a world of difference for public servants and citizens alike. And while many experts are motivated by the idea of public service, they don’t know where or how to begin exploring a high-impact “tour of duty.”
Federal agencies often lack deep reach into the expert communities best positioned to help on key priorities — and the muscle memory to harness key flexible hiring authorities to bring them in quickly.
The Talent Hub rapidly identifies, matches, and deploys technical talent into federal agencies to work on the most urgent policy priorities through key flexible authorities, like the Intergovernmental Personnel Act Mobility Program.
For federal partners, this is a one-stop-shop to receive support and guidance to engage scientific and technical talent in agency priorities, including:
1) Identifying and Brokering Talent
Matching and onboarding scientific and technical talent to federal agencies for “tours of duty” focused on addressing urgent policy priorities. The Day One Project offers administrative support and an experienced team to help agencies in identifying and onboarding scientific and technical into offices where agencies need them the most.
2) Helping Build Capacity To Use Flexible Hiring Mechanisms
Meeting agency needs by providing support to leverage flexible hiring mechanisms. Flexible hiring mechanisms are dramatically underutilized by federal agencies, as many lack 1) the time, resources and know-how to navigate their complicated requirements and use cases, and 2) the access to networks to identify the top talent for a relevant position.
