Potomac Officers Club Features DHS CHCO Angela Bailey as Keynote Speaker During Optimizing the Hybrid Workforce Forum

Potomac Officers Club (POC) hosted its highly-anticipated Optimizing the Hybrid Workforce Forum on Thursday to bring together the significant members from across the federal government and industry to discuss how to ensure a strong workforce culture, uncover risks that may undermine mission effectiveness and leverage data to inform change management and transformation.

Angela Bailey, chief human capital officer for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), acted as the keynote speaker for the Forum and provided an overview exploring the long-term implications of a hybrid workforce model for federal agencies and how data analytics can inform key decisions around workforce composition and transformation.

After a brief history recap and some opening remarks from Chrissy Cocrane, vice president of management advisory services at LMI, who served as the keynote introducer, Angela Bailey took the platform to address the virtual audience.

Bailey began her keynote address with a bold statement. “We have always worked and lived in a distributed hybrid environment.” She broke down the communications we’ve had throughout history from smoke signals to written letters to telephones and the technology of the modern-day.

She expressed that despite her working in offices across four decades in the federal government, the U.S. military, the civilian sector and certain agencies like the Social Security Administration (SSA) have always been spread far and wide across the globe and yet we’re been able to set new goals, accomplish them and drive innovation.

Her point was to illustrate that success isn’t tied to just one location and moving forward, we all need to work to develop a global telework culture that’s inclusive that creates opportunities to get work done and build rapport regardless of our locations.

“Be deliberate in creating those opportunities that drive the culture you want.],” said Bailey. And then we live and breathe your purpose. The mission is great for finding ways for people to explore and find their purpose. Ultimately, that’s what will make both them and your organization grow.”
