FEVS to roll out in April

The Office of Personnel Management announced that the new Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey will begin going out to agencies in two waves beginning at the end of April.

According to a March 4 memo to agencies from OPM acting Director Beth Cobert, each agency’s survey will be open for six weeks. The last surveys will close in mid-June.

Cobert, who said reports on the results of the surveys will be released on a rolling basis starting in August, encouraged agency leaders to promote the importance of the survey to employees.

“Critical to the success of the 2016 FEVS is the visible support of each agency’s senior leadership,” Cobert wrote in the memo. “That success starts with you and your leadership team. Your collective efforts in conveying to each and every employee the importance of their feedback to you, and how it will drive improvements in your agency, is the first step towards obtaining effective and meaningful FEVS results.”

“While survey results have varied from year to year, the strength of the FEVS continues to be the consistent, reliable and actionable information it provides the Federal government, each agency, and lower level offices within each organization.” Cobert said.
