Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey Results

Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) results

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

The Veterans Affairs 2012 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) results are based on over 13,300 respondents (a 31% response rate).  VA saw improvement between 2011 and 2012 survey years on the following FEVS items:

  • How would you rate the overall quality of work done by your work unit?
  • Satisfaction with Telework
  • Satisfaction with Child Care Programs

VA employees did note small declines from 2011 to 2012 in items such as:

  • I like the kind of work I do (although this item was still one of the most highly rated)
  • I have enough information to do my job well

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

2012 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey Results

The Veterans Affairs 2011 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) results are based on over 13,700 respondents (a 47% response rate). VA saw statistically significant improvement between 2010 and 2011 survey years on the following Federal Employee Viewpoint survey items: 

  • Employees are recognized for providing high-quality products and services
  • Arbitrary action, personal favoritism and coercion for partisan political purposes are not tolerated
  • My supervisor supports my need to balance work and other life issues (agree or strongly agree)
  • Overall, how good a job do you feel is being done by your immediate supervisor/team leader?
  • Managers/supervisors/team leaders work well with employees of different backgrounds
  • Satisfaction with Alternative Work Schedules

VA employees did note small declines from 2010 to 2011 regarding:

  • I like the kind of work I do (although this item was still one of the most highly rated)
  • Satisfaction with Elder Care Programs

VA employees reported high, positive scores on employee satisfaction and workplace perceptions. When scores were lower, such as employee satisfaction with their performance ratings, pay, or promotion opportunities, VA employee scores corresponded to ratings reported in other federal agencies.
