2023 OHR Annual Report

Letter from the OHR Director

I am pleased to share the 2023 Annual Report for the NIH Office of Human Resources (OHR), which showcases our achievements, milestones, and continued progress from calendar year 2023. As we continue to adapt to our evolving workplace environment, it is vital that our workforce remains forward-thinking and agile to best support our People, Partners, and customers across NIH.

OHR remains committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) initiatives through specific focus in our organizational strategic plan activities, targeted seminars, expanded training opportunities and enhanced recruitment efforts in underserved communities. Our team continues to leverage technology to improve processes and enhance our customer experience through app development and process-automation. And lastly, I’m proud to share that OHR wrapped up our Proof of Concept: OHR as an Agile Organization, an effort focused on evaluating organizational norms, resource needs, and employee engagement in a virtual-first environment. We even hosted our first OHR Homecoming event marking the culmination of this effort, fostering connection and collaboration among team members, and aligning with NIH's mission.  

I invite you to read about these accomplishments and more highlights in our 2023 Annual Report. I am so proud to showcase the work of our OHR team, who continue to seek out thoughtful solutions to enrich the workplace experiences for our People and Partners and drive Progress for our organization. The future is exciting in the NIH Office of Human Resources!
