OPM’s New Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey

survey_surveycloseup__small_The Office of Personnel Management is planning on increasing the number of federal government employees it polls this year. In fact, the agency plans to survey 100,000 more federal government employees than it did in 2008.

The survey, which used to be the “Federal Human Capital Survey,” is now called the “Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey.” Many employees will take the survey online and the results will be compiled by the end of June. Some of the major goals of the surveys are to measure job satisfaction and how well agencies are doing to motivate, as well as manage their personnel.

In regards to the new survey, OPM Director John Berry said, “With the cooperation of those taking the survey, we will better able to gauge what is and isn’t working to create a workplace that attracts the best and brightest.”

OPM plans to administer the survey each year instead of every two years like it had done in the past. The agency will address new areas, such as employee engagement and work-life balance. The survey will be distributed through mid-March to more than half a million federal government employees.
