‘There’s a place for everybody’ within SBA reorganization plan
When the government reorganization guidance came out, many agencies went back to their drawing boards to figure out how to cut costs and shrink their workforce. The SBA headed to the wanted ads.
“We are hiring people,” said Elias Hernandez, SBA’s chief human capital officer. “We probably are one of the few organizations that still can hire new people. We’re always looking for good people to be members of our organization, so if you know any college students finishing their programs, or anyone from a different agency that’s been downsized, [someone] looking for an opportunity, refer them to us.”
That’s not to say SBA has completely dodged the downsizing prompted by the White House’s governtmentwide reorganization, but thanks to good planning — and already operating with a tightened belt — the agency seems to have not only landed on its feet post-reorg directive, but hit the ground running.
