Workforce Planning & Worklife

Workforce Planning

The ADNI/HC provides IC enterprise strategic workforce planning guidance, oversight and venues for sharing best practices. The goal of the organization is to help agencies and elements develop mature systems that ensure the right person with the right skills, experience, education and training is at the right place at the right time and at a supportable cost. The ADNI/HC is providing pilot programs to provide workforce planning for small IC elements with limited resources. One focus is to assist IC mission partners to identify requirements, capabilities, and gaps, and to have enterprise-level visibility of the state of the IC workforce to potentially manage human resources corporately.


The Workforce Planning team collects and consolidates data for all 17 IC agencies to perform Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act reporting. This identifies which IC activities are inherently governmental and thus must be performed by government employees, along with a service contractor invertory to provide an opportunity for integrate the two inventories to support balanced workforce analyses. The IC CHCO workforce planning organization also conducts IC-wide employee climate surveys to provide IC leadership insight into workforce attitudes and job satisfaction levels.

WorkLife, Family Support and Benefits Programs

Worklife is the name given to a set of programs designed to help employees better manage their work and family responsibilities. Traditionally, the goal of Worklife programs is to assist employees in achieving balance between personal and professional responsibilities. Worklife programs are designed to help employees better manage their work, personal and professional lives and include Worklife, Family Support and Benefits services.

  • Build a collaborative, competitive and comprehensive benefits program to attract, recruit and retain employees
  • Address issues and concerns of workers in the 21st century to help the IC “Win the War for Talent”
  • Continue to develop and offer "best practice" programs provided by other government agencies and industry to attract America's best and brightest talent
  • Strengthen the sense of “Community” across the intelligence enterprise to facilitate interagency shared practices, movement and mobility
