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.
