Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey to begin this month
The 2012 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey will begin going out to feds starting this month, according to the Office of Personnel Management. The annual survey, first used in 2002, measures employees' perceptions of the various conditions that characterize successful organizations.
OPM will administer the FEVS to about 1.8 million feds—up from about 560,000 employees last year. Starting this year, the survey also will include permanent part-time employees in addition to permanent full-time employees.
The survey, which OPM said takes about 25 minutes to complete, will be given from April through June. In addition to the questions asked in prior years, OPM said it is adding three new demographic items that focus on disability status, veterans' status, and sexual orientation.
The American Federation of Government Employees posted a copy of the FEVS announcement on its web site.
