HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- Join Meridian Knowledge Solutions and Brandon Hall Group for a free, one-hour webinar on January 31, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EST to learn how federal human capital management technologies and services are changing to meet the fiscal pressures, new policies and difficult tasks government agencies now face.

Stacey Harris, vice president of Research & Advisory Services at Brandon Hall Group, will lead a panel discussion on the changes and future opportunities for government agencies with the following experts:
Webinar takeaways will include:

But, for that to happen, it's important to have certain policies and procedures in place before an implementation; you also need assurances that your vendor is complying with government security requirements."
