OPM has made available a course titled “Pay and Leave Flexibilities for Recruitment and Retention” which “provides a comprehensive overview of pay and leave flexibilities for federal supervisors, hiring managers, and human resources practitioners.”

“The course illustrates the range of pay and leave flexibilities available to agencies across all occupations to address their critical employee recruitment and retention needs, coverage and approval requirements for the flexibilities, examples of their use, and resources for additional information,” OPM said in a memo to agencies.

The web-based course is available to agencies at no cost on hru.gov and agencies may upload it to their own systems, OPM said.
