The Office of Human Capital Management and Training (HCT) provides oversight, guidance, and support in setting the NTSB’s workforce development strategy and aligns human resources policies with the agency’s mission. HCT develops goals and objectives and provides leadership in human capital planning and development, employment and staffing, compensation, benefits, executive resources, succession planning, labor and employee relations, agency-wide training programs, career management, and other human capital and training functions. Two divisions carry out the office’s work: Human Resources and Career Development and Training.
