In an exit interview with the Washington Post, Acting OPM Director Beth Cobert warned against policies proposed by President-elect Donald Trump’s administration that include broad hiring freezes and changes to civil service due-process rights.
She also urged that federal managers confront unconscious bias in their hiring and promotion practices, according to the report.
