FederalERM.org in the News - Government Executive Magazine
In an article entitled “Learning It Your Way” published in Government Executive Magazine in 2010, the following was noted about the FederalERM.org website:
“…But for government workers who have to learn new skills on the job, formal training won't cut it. The knowledge, skills and abilities they need to develop can be found only through informal networks and nontraditional learning efforts. Federal training professionals have to rethink the way they help employees learn new skills. Think "self-help," not "enroll here."
Indeed, social networking sites have helped foster permanent professional development networks for government workers. For example, some 300 federal professionals interested in enterprise risk management have joined the site FederalERM.org to keep up with the latest developments in that field.”
