    • Description:
      Thirty percent of federal public health employees were retirement eligible in September 2017. Further, at the state public health level, as indicated in the recent Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (PH WINS), an estimated 25% of employees are planning to retire before 2020 with an additional 18% intending to leave their organizations within one year. Due to these workforce changes, there is an urgent need for public health organizations to examine how they are ensuring a talent pool from which leaders can emerge. As a large federal public health agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) faces the challenge of providing leadership development to staff. Factors were examined that agency leaders identified as key components of a leadership development program to transition scientific public health staff into supervisory leadership roles. While many factors contribute to leadership development, participants more often identified training, provision of opportunities, mentors, and identification of high potential employees as key components of a leadership develop program. With the need to develop organizational leaders to be ready when vacancies become available, findings from this study can inform the development and implementation of public health leadership development programs.
