Bersin by Deloitte Recognizes MyCareer@VA for Helping Build Talented Teams at VA
The MyCareer@VA team is proud to announce that the VA Learning University has been named a 2013 Bersin & Associates (now Bersin by Deloitte) “Leveraging WhatWorks®” Award winner. This award recognizes programs that have made a positive impact on their organizations by supporting the development of each employee.
In a recent press release, David Mallon, Vice President of Research for Bersin by Deloitte, said that many of the winning programs addressed “the need to invest in tomorrow’s leaders from within their ranks to combat a worldwide shortage of leadership talent [and] having a simple, sustainable framework for matching competencies to roles for better talent management.”
This is certainly true of MyCareer@VA, which aims to connect current and prospective VA employees with career opportunities that fit their interests and ambitions.
“Winning a WhatWorks Award is a milestone achievement for MyCareer@VA and for VALU,” said VALU’s Dr. Carrie Tuning, “We strive to deliver innovative solutions, and this award confirms that we are on the right track in our efforts to empower all VA employees to uncover new career possibilities that ultimately serve our nation’s Veterans and their families.”
Moving forward, the MyCareer@VA program will continue to expand to cover more occupations and more jobs at VA. As of January, the program now offers robust information for 40 of VA’s occupational families, giving users the opportunity to explore more than 450 roles – representing 86% of VA’s workforce. There will be new content added in April, including online training modules for supervisors.
