SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose The goal of TTS is to modernize the way the government uses technology by applying modern methodologies and technologies to improve the public’s experience with government. In order to accomplish this, we need to be able to attract top technical talent from across the country. This often means competing for talent with the private sector, where companies can often offer more robust compensation and benefits. In order to remain competitive, it is vital that we provide an exceptional candidate experience and maintain a strong brand reputation. Some of the ways we strive to do this is through VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Aug 27, 2020 Jkt 250001 providing clear job descriptions, thorough interview preparation and personalized candidate experience throughout the process. In doing so, we are better able to recruit more candidates into doing a tour of duty in the government. Candidate Surveys are a way for us to continuously measure how we are doing and make any necessary improvements to our hiring process so we can continue to hire and attract the top talent we need at the rate we need them in this demanding market. By consistently asking applicants and candidates for their feedback and reviewing the survey results, we can pinpoint what areas in our process need to be modified, changed, removed, and/ or added. Surveys allow respondents to remain anonymous and will be sent out three times during the hiring process: • After a candidate applies to a role. Data at this stage will help us understand if our job descriptions provide a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities that we are hiring for. It will also help us understand if our website has thorough enough information about the overall hiring process or if there are more resources that we can be providing. • After a candidate interviews. Data at this stage will help us understand if we are properly preparing candidates and interviewers for interviews. • When the candidate is Selected or Not Selected after the Interview. Data at this stage will help us understand what the candidate’s experience was with their TTS recruiter overall and if there is anything they think we can improve upon.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The goal of TTS is to modernize the way the government uses 
technology by applying modern methodologies and technologies to improve 
the public's experience with government. In order to accomplish this, 
we need to be able to attract top technical talent from across the 
country. This often means competing for talent with the private sector, 
where companies can often offer more robust compensation and benefits.
    In order to remain competitive, it is vital that we provide an 
exceptional candidate experience and maintain a strong brand 
reputation. Some of the ways we strive to do this is through providing 
clear job descriptions, thorough interview preparation and personalized 
candidate experience throughout the process. In doing so, we are better 
able to recruit more candidates into doing a tour of duty in the 
government. Candidate Surveys are a way for us to continuously measure 
how we are doing and make any necessary improvements to our hiring 
process so we can continue to hire and attract the top talent we need 
at the rate we need them in this demanding market.
    By consistently asking applicants and candidates for their feedback 
and reviewing the survey results, we can pinpoint what areas in our 
process need to be modified, changed, removed, and/or added. Surveys 
allow respondents to remain anonymous and will be sent out three times 
during the hiring process:
     After a candidate applies to a role. Data at this stage 
will help us understand if our job descriptions provide a clear 
understanding of the roles and responsibilities that we are hiring for. 
It will also help us understand if our website has thorough enough 
information about the overall hiring process or if there are more 
resources that we can be providing.
     After a candidate interviews. Data at this stage will help 
us understand if we are properly preparing candidates and interviewers 
for interviews.
     When the candidate is Selected or Not Selected after the 
Interview. Data at this stage will help us understand what the 
candidate's experience was with their TTS recruiter overall and if 
there is anything they think we can improve upon.
