OPM: Agencies Should Find Ways to Keep Employees Engaged

US office of personnel managementJustin Johnson, deputy chief of staff at the Office of Personnel Management, has called on federal agencies to offer programs to boost employee morale and engagement, Federal Times reported Tuesday.

“It keeps you feeling like what you’re doing is making a difference,” Johnson said about engagement.

Sean Reilly writes an OPM survey of 377,000 government workers found that nearly all respondents are willing to go the extra mile in order to get work done and 90 percent aim to excel in their roles.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission holds executive-level seminars on problem solving and conflict management and monitors any problem that may arise during tough times, Reilly writes.

Federal Times reports the Agriculture Department seeks input from labor unions before making decisions and the Justice Department has established focus groups and mentoring programs for its employees.
