FEVS Reveals Slight Progress, More Work Still Needed

Full results of the 2016 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) reveal persistent issues within key agencies. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) released complete agency results last week.

“Federal employees continue to endure chronic funding cuts, threats of sequestration, inadequate pay raises and attacks on federal retirement and health benefits,” said National President Tony Reardon. “Despite this, the survey once again shows the deep commitment federal employees have to their work.”

Nearly half the federal workforce, 407,789 employees, completed the survey this year. While participants remain committed to their role, and in favor of benefits like telework, the improvements across the board have been marginal compared to 2015 results.

NTEU is prepared to take this information to the bargaining table, Congress, the media, and to other areas using survey results to push for improvement.
