    In 2019, NASA received a directive to land the first woman and the next man on the moon within five years through new partnerships with the emerging commercial space industry.  Sixty years old as an organization, we were challenged to embrace a new mindset, to transform NASA into a leaner, more accountable and agile organization, and incorporate new ways to accomplish our mission formerly only performed by NASA.  To better understand and navigate emerging new workplace realities, we reviewed the latest research on the Future of Work. We conducted internal and external workshops, held focus groups, incorporated insights from futurist interviews and used targeted surveys to develop our Future of Work framework. 

    During this presentation, Elizabeth Kolmstetter and Dan Ward will review NASA’s Future of Work framework, which identified eight insights, challenges, and opportunities that are informing NASA’s future talent strategy.  Participants in this session are invited to share their own approaches to these eight themes and to help NASA incorporate new insights about global shifts, trends and implications that are constantly changing all organization’s work environments. 

    Dan Ward currently serves as the National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) Special Advisor, Talent Solutions.  Before NASA, he was the Chief Workforce Economist for The MITRE Corporation. In his commercial career, Ward developed and implemented the human capital planning and analytics practices for EDS, Texaco, GTE and AT&T-Western Electric.   He was the guest editor for HR People + Strategy Fall 2019 issue and was the senior editor for AMACOM's Positioned: Strategic Workforce Planning that Gets the Right Person in the Right Job and HRPS's Best Practices in Human Resource Forecasting and Modeling.  In 2016, HR People + Strategy recognized Dan for his long-term contributions in innovative people practices with their Lifetime Achievement Award.



    Elizabeth Kolmstetter is the Director of Talent Strategy and Engagement at NASA. In this role, she has broad responsibilities for talent strategies and programs including employee engagement, workforce planning and talent acquisition, studies of the future of work, and people analytics. With over 25 years of public service, she has pioneered numerous innovative talent management programs across agencies including NASA, USAID, CIA, FBI, Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), and Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Kolmstetter is a recipient of the National Intelligence Superior Service Medal, is a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), received the M. Scott Myers Award for Best Applied Research from SIOP, and received the Innovations in Assessment Award from the International Personnel Management Association. She received her Ph.D. and M.S. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Virginia Tech and her B.A. in Psychology and Computer Science from Hollins University.

    What if the talent you're seeking to hire is already on your company's payroll but going untapped? Employees often have capabilities and aspirations that go far beyond their current job descriptions. Discover a new approach to work that moves us from a focus on jobs to a more fluid project-based approach to work.
     
    In a rapidly changing economy that demands the constant reskilling of workers, the future belongs to companies that can access and deploy talent quickly and efficiently. Today’s organizations need to be able to quickly pivot and move talent to the greatest area of need.  Unlock the hidden skills within your organization to keep your employees happy and engaged, improve your organization’s agility, and lower your costs.

    During this meeting you will learn how to:

    • Create a new "Talent Operating Model" (TOM) to uncover and cost-effectively match the right talent to real-time business challenges
    • Apply the 6 core principles that underly this new TOM
    • Uncover the hidden skills within your workforce 
    • Bust the "functional silos" in your company to create agile, collaborative teams
    • Improve employee retention by offering employees the opportunity to expand their careers within your organization rather than leaving in search of new challenges
