Washington, DC - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) today issued the governmentwide results from the 2008 Survey of the Senior Executive Service (SES). The Survey was administered on-line in January and February to all SES and focused on the new SES pay-for-performance system, executive development and general attitudes toward work. The survey had a 65 percent response rate.
"The results of the survey show the SES is a committed and qualified group of people dedicated to their work on behalf of the American people," said OPM Director Linda M. Springer. "It also points out that the federal government has work to do in order to continue to develop and attract a highly qualified executive workforce."
