This week, the Office of Personnel Management announced the 2022 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (OPM FEVS) via an e-advisory.
According to their official statement, the “OPM FEVS provides you with a safe and confidential way to voice your opinions and experiences to leadership. This year the OPM FEVS features content familiar from the past, as well as new content focusing on topics of interest across government, such as Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility, and questions asking about innovation, customer responsiveness, resilience and work quality in your workplace.”
The announcement continued, imploring federal employees to take the time to provide leadership with insights into sharing experience within their organization. It was noted that this is especially critical due to the number of employees now returning to the physical workplace from maximum telework.
This information is helpful for agency leadership to get a better understanding of where they can make improvements. Please go to https://www.opm.gov/fevs/ for more information on the survey.
The OPM states that, “participation is voluntary and you may use official time. The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Support and maximum participation is requested of those receiving an email to participate in order to ensure their voice is heard.”
The first wave of survey invitations were sent out on May 30th and the second wave will be sent the week of June 6th. The survey will conclude on Friday, 15th Jul 2022 @ 11:59 PM EST. Employees should be on the watch for survey invitation and reminder emails from ‘EVAF@OPM.gov’.
