OPM Unveils Employee Viewpoint Survey Results; Joseph Kennedy Comments

US office of personnel managementThe Office of Personnel Management has released the results of a survey examining the viewpoints of federal employees.

The 2013 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey indicates a decline in scores compared with the 2012 results, OPM said Friday.

OPM Associate Director Joseph Kennedy cited sequestration, furloughs, pay freezes and budget cuts as main contributors to the decrease this year in a letter.

“Surveys can capture important information about attitudes of the workforce and the climate at individual units,” Kennedy said.

“Using survey results to improve the conditions that influence attitudes is an investment with a potential for high returns,” added Kennedy.

Kennedy told human resources directors that FEV results could provide opportunities for improvement.

  1. I’m pretty sure that the survey results are headed for a Mud-Slide this FY after the recent announcement from DHS that ICE (ERO) and Border Patrol are being suspended from our compensation of Administrative Overtime, an approx cut of pay by $1000.00 per pay day for most, is being suspended….all because an Investigation revealed that there were “some” people taking advantage of the system!!!! Really…this Agency is falling apart with all the poor decision making going on!
