A new survey has found that experienced federal supervisors do not receive the same amount of management training as new supervisors, Federal Times reports.
According to an Office of Personnel Management Federal Supervisory Training Program Survey released May 21, while 89 percent of new federal supervisors receive training in the four management areas required by the Code of Federal Regulations, only 63 percent of experienced supervisors receive that same training, the report notes.
The survey also found that those employees who aspire to join the ranks of government supervisory roles received even less training and coaching than those who were actually promoted or already established supervisors, according to the report, which notes that OPM recommended that agencies revamp their training programs.
