According to results from a government-wide survey released Monday, the Office of Management and Budget has named the Federal Communications Commission the “most improved” government agency this year.
The 2010 OPM Viewpoint Employee Satisfaction Survey is an annual online survey led by the OMB to gauge job satisfaction and motivation within agencies. This year, the FCC takes home the prize.
“I am delighted that the FCC has been recognized as the ‘most improved’ federal agency,” said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. “The survey results reflect the hard work being done throughout the agency to make the FCC a model of excellence in government.”
He added: “The FCC’s reform agenda, which builds on the impressive strides made by Commissioner Copps as acting chairman, includes creating new opportunities for employees to provide feedback; improving employee communication through technology and new media; and focusing on leadership development and opportunities for employees. I applaud the work of the FCC management and staff and look forward to more great things to come.”
The survey was distributed in March and reached more than half a million federal government employees.
The Office of Personnel Management Director John Berry commented on the goal of the survey when it revamped its methods in February. He 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.”
