2014 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey

The results of the 2013 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) are back. Employees across the Federal government took the survey last spring to measure workplace satisfaction, employee engagement, leadership and knowledge management, talent management, and results-oriented performance culture. This year, the percentage of VA employees completing the survey rose from 31% to 38% (29,800 respondents). When the responses were tallied, they showed that VA employees reported high, positive scores on employee job satisfaction. While scores on all survey questions showed very little change between 2012 and 2013, VA employees generally responded slightly more favorably on most items.

Areas of improvement between 2012 and 2013 include:

  • In the last six months, my supervisor/team leader has talked with me about my performance;
  • Satisfaction with Telework; and
  • In my most recent performance appraisal, I understood what I had to do to be rated at different performance levels (for example, Fully Successful, Outstanding)

Areas with small declines include:

  • I believe the results of this survey will be used to make my agency a better place to work; and
  • My organization has prepared employees for potential security threats.

2013 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey Results

VA employees reported high, positive scores on employee job satisfaction.
