BATON ROUGE – Jared Llorens, who holds the Texas Tiger Tournament/Greater Houston
Alumni Association Developing Scholar Professorship and is an assistant professor
in the LSU Public Administration Institute, co-authored five memos as part of the
Memos to National Leaders project for the National Academy of Public Administration
and the American Society for Public Administration.
Llorens’ memos, including “Enhancing Federal Training and Development” and “Improving
Employee/Labor Relations,” fall under the umbrella of the project’s Strengthening
the Federal Workforce section, which aims to inform current and incoming political
leaders of the challenges the nation faces while offering solutions representing a
consensus of the best public management practitioners and researchers from across
“As many in the field of public administration have observed over the past decade,
the federal workforce faces a number of critical challenges that must be addressed
in order to fulfill the increasingly complex demands placed upon federal agencies,”
the Memo overview reads. “In an effort to provide assistance to the next presidential
administration and Congress, we have prepared a set of policy memos that each summarize
a key challenge for federal human resources managers and provide practical recommendations
on how the president and Congress can better position the federal workforce to meet
the dynamic and growing demands placed upon it.”

Llorens has research interests in human resources management, public sector compensation,
research methods and public policy.
According to its website, the NAPA was “created to help public sector leaders meet the important and varied management challenges of today and anticipate those of the future.” Its partner, the ASPA, is “dedicated to advancing the art, science, teaching and practice of public and non-profit administration.”
