OPM Launches 2020 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey

WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) launched today the 2020 OPM Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (OPM FEVS), a questionnaire that measures Federal employees’ perceptions of conditions in their agencies. Administered annually, the OPM FEVS serves as a tool for employees to voice their opinions confidentially on topics such as agency leadership, work environment, opportunities for professional growth, supervisor efficacy, and other areas supporting employee and agency success.

The OPM FEVS is administered electronically to full-time and part-time non-seasonal employees across the Federal Government over the course of six weeks. Results are then aggregated and analyzed to help agency leaders identify where improvement is needed, areas of high achievement and accomplishment, and to help guide future changes that can lead to more productive workplaces across the Federal Government.  

“The OPM Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey is a tool to help us identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement across the Federal Government,” said Acting Director Michael Rigas, “Feedback provided through the OPM FEVS helps support the great work being done by Federal employees and improve our service to the American people.”

The survey will be administered from September 14, 2020 through November 5, 2020.
