What’s next for HR in the Trump era?
The US Department of Human Resources (DHR) is reportedly planning to eliminate HR roles and positions in the administration’s Department of Labor (DOL).
Sources familiar with the situation tell the Washington Examiner that the move will come at a time when the administration is considering the hiring of more permanent staff for its HR team.
In the last few weeks, President Donald Trump has reportedly begun considering a hiring freeze for DOL staff, including more than 2,000 DOL employees.
Sources told the Examiner that DHR will likely end the hiring freeze, but not remove its HR functions.
This is likely to be a departure from previous administration policies, which have allowed HR positions to be filled through other avenues.
However, a DHR spokesperson told the Washington Post that “we do not have plans to remove HR from the Department of the Treasury.”
The DOL currently has more than 8,000 full-time employees and about 1,000 part-time.
As of March 31, DOL had nearly 2,500 permanent employees, according to a recent report from the DOL’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
According to the EEOC, about 8,500 full- and part-timers were employed in the department in March, with about 3,400 part- and full-timer positions vacant.
The DHR was established in 1940 and was intended to provide permanent employment to the American workforce.
But during the Obama administration, the agency began to be used primarily as a recruitment tool.
This changed when the Obama Administration eliminated the DHR in 2017.
Since then, Trump has appointed many of his own officials to the agency, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who recently left his post as an unpaid adviser to the president.
He has also appointed two members of his administration to the DOH, Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta and Director of Personnel Ryan Braun.
The Trump administration also hired a private consultant to help manage its HR program.
Sources close to the matter told the Daily Beast that the hiring decision will likely come in the coming months, possibly as early as March.
According to DHR’s website, the department has more employees than any other federal agency.
However it is unclear what the future of HR will look like for the Dols, or if it will continue to exist at all.
The department’s staffing plan says that it expects to continue to have at least two positions open through 2019.
According the DHC’s 2018 annual report, the DHP had a total of more than 15,000 employees in 2019, up from 13,000 in 2019.
The agency has also announced plans to increase its staff by about 1.2 million employees, up to about 21,000, as of the beginning of 2021.
The hiring freeze will likely put pressure on the agency’s already-relatively-limited resources, especially with the Trump administration considering to remove all DOL positions from the federal workforce.
The Department of Education, which currently has the largest number of employees in the federal government, has also been a focus for critics.
As the Washington Times reports, the administration has already announced that it plans to eliminate nearly 2 million positions at the Department for Education (DEP).
Sources told Reuters that the elimination of DEP positions is likely “in the coming weeks.”
The Department for the Arts and Sciences is also set to be eliminated by the end of 2019.
A spokesperson for the agency told the Wall Street Journal that the department “has not made a decision on its long-term workforce plan.”
Meanwhile, the Department to Protect and Elderly Americans has also reported that it has received more than $1.3 billion in funding since 2018.
However the funding has been limited in some ways.
It is unclear how many positions will be eliminated and how many of those positions will remain.
The federal government also has the highest number of veterans and active duty service members in the country.
In addition, the Trump Administration has also reportedly begun to look into other options for HR positions.
This includes recruiting people from other federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Justice, which could be a possibility.
The move by the Trump government to eliminate all of the agency is likely not the end for the office.
According DHR, it has plans to continue its hiring of temporary and contract positions in a phased manner, as well as expand the number of positions the agency can accept.
However if the hiring process fails to produce a positive result, the office will consider other options, including a “no-hire” policy.
