Government reorganizations: Will this one be different?

If you work for the government — you know about reorganizations. Every president does it, including current president Donald Trump, who has a new plan to restructure the federal government and its workforce.

This week on Your Turn, host Mike Causey will be talking with Jason Miller, executive editor of Federal News Radio, and Jessica Klement, legislative director for the National Active and Retired Federal Employees.

Both have lots of experience in covering the people side of government. They’ve been through past reorganizations and they’ll talk about how this one may be different, and what impact it will have both on agencies, and the people on that agency’s program.

So what do you think? Is this the same-old same-old or something different? Have you been through a reorganization before? Was it better after the dust settled? Or worse? What are you doing (or what can you do) to survive this one? We’d love to hear from ghosts of reorganizations past. Send them to me at And listen today to see what two veterans of earlier reorganizations have to say.
