Beth Cobert, acting director at the Office of Personnel Management, has called on employees across the federal government to complete a voluntary survey that aims to seek feedback on their agencies, jobs and work environments.
Cobert wrote in a blog post published Tuesday that the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey is one of the tools that could help agencies manage employee engagement as part of the President’s Management Agenda.
Responses to the 2015 FEVS have led OPM to create workshops for agency supervisors and employees, revamp employee resource groups, expand inclusion and diversity dialogues, and re-establish a mentoring program at the agency, she said.
“Each employee’s voice can inspire change,” wrote Cobert, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2016.
“Everyone’s responses help agencies identify areas that need attention.”
Responses to the first wave of surveys are due June 6, while the second and final batch of FEVS will close on June 14, according to Cobert.
