Recruiting Army civilians into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) specialties is critical to Army Priorities. USACE has 38,000 civilian employees and only 800 Soldier. In 2021, USACE made 3,130 Direct Hire Appointments and recruited more than 225 interns into Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) programs.
Onboarding new civilian employees into any government position can take time and USACE has worked with other federal agencies to speed that process; especially when meeting diversity hiring goals. USACE was rated #4 in HBCU hiring in 2021 by blackengineer.com.
USACE has one of the most diverse mission sets in the federal government, spanning military construction, civil infrastructure, water resource management, Civil Works: building and managing national infrastructure; National water resources management; Support to commercial navigation; Restoration, protection and management of aquatic ecosystems; Flood risk management and providing Engineering and technical services in an environmentally sustainable, economic, and technically sound manner with a focus on public safety and collaborative partnerships.
USACE is experiencing increased demand for engineering services across the board. With an $85 billion portfolio of projects, attracting diverse, civilian talent is critical for success.
“As our workload increases, human capital efforts must evolve as well. USACE must be a great place to work if we are to attract and retain diverse, world class talent,” said LTG Scott Spellmon, Commanding General of USACE. “Without diversity, we also limit our ability to innovate and to meet the differing needs of the public. As a world class engineering organization, USACE is committed to leveraging the unique talents of our team members to remain competitive today and in the future.”
Under Administration leadership, USACE IS working to identify the full spectrum of economic, environmental, and other benefits to the Nation, including how to address environmental justice concerns.
USACE is also a leader in sustainable engineering technology. Sustainability was adopted as a guiding principle in 2002 and the Engineering With Nature Program® brings partners, stakeholders and government organizations around the world into a program that seeks new ways of building environmental, social and economic benefits into infrastructure and water resource management projects.
