On the left side of the image a group of cartoon people from the shoulders up are in a group with three arrows of different sizes circling them. On the right is a blue box with white text that reads Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey: Empowering Employees. Inspiring Change. OPM.gov logo in the right hand corner.

From May 2 until June 22, 2017, just over a million employees across the Federal government will have the chance to participate in the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS).  If you received a survey this year, I invite you to participate.  While you may find it hard to set aside time in your busy day, or even wonder about the value of participating, let me assure you -- your response is valued!  The FEVS is an employee survey, which means it is your survey.  Results from the survey support the work of government by giving you a voice in ongoing Federal workplace improvements. The survey is sent to a sample of employees and your input helps your leadership know more about the employee experience.

All levels of leadership across government are able to use FEVS results to inform decisions for agency development. Results provide a snapshot of employees’ perceptions of whether, and to what extent, conditions characterizing successful organizations are present in their agencies. This is your opportunity to help shape and improve Federal workplaces. OPM shares results from the FEVS through a series of reports and tools to help agency leadership identify challenges and opportunities for Federal workplace development.  You too can see results from the FEVS.  A few weeks after the survey closes, we send a summary of responses to each FEVS item to your agency, and those are required to be posted to your agency intranet within 120 days. You can also find FEVS Government-wide results on our website.  FEVS results are also available with other HR data on our UnlockTalent dashboard; log in to see your agency’s 2016 results.

While your perspective is shared, it is confidential: your identity and any information that would permit personal identification will be withheld when survey results are shared with your employer or in publicly released reports regarding the survey.  . 

The FEVS supports information-sharing between employees and management as they come together to serve the American people.  So remember, if you receive a Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey please take the time to respond.  Your response to the survey is important and counts toward the successful functioning of your agency and the Federal government.
