Times may get tougher for federal workers down the road, but a new study shows spirits are still high in federal offices.

On Thursday, the Office of Personnel Management released the results of its 2011 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey.

OPM said it received a record 266,000 responses.

Nearly 85 percent said they enjoyed doing their jobs and 92 percent said they feel their work is important.

The majority of employees, 69 percent, said they would recommend their agency as a good place to work and 84 percent said they felt accountable for achieving results.

“Employee engagement is key to mission success,” OPM Director John Berry said. “That’s why leading private companies survey their employees. Engaged employees who feel accountable for delivering results will provide the American people the best service.”
