The Gorilla in the Redesign Room:

Rethinking Public Sector Workforce Issues in an Era of Government Redesign


To say Marty Manley has enjoyed an unusual leadership career in business, government, and nonprofit organizations is a gross understatement.    Beginning as a union organizer in California, Marty held elected or staff positions with several labor unions in the 70s and 80s.   In 1993 he was appointed by President Clinton to serve as Assistant Secretary of Labor where he created the Office of the American Workplace to regulate labor unions and promote workplace innovation.   Following his experience in government, Marty has held several executive positions in the private sector including CEO of one of Silicon Valley’s fastest growing technology companies.


Through it all Marty has gained a unique perspective on the intersection of workforce management, unions, and the government productivity imperative.  Join us as Marty shares his insights and thoughts about the challenges and opportunities revolving around public sector workforces in the 21st century.
