2019 OPM survey on employees' benefits coming soon

The Office of Personnel Management announced that it would administer the 2019 Federal Employee Benefits Survey, which polls feds on their employee benefits, in coming weeks.

The survey was last administered in 2017, according to a recent memo. They were also conducted in 2013, 2011 and 2006

“The purpose of the FEBS is to measure the importance, adequacy and value of employee benefits to assess if employees believe that the available benefits meet their needs,” the memo states.

The survey also aims to help evaluate whether or not federal employees understand the benefits available to them.

“Additionally, due to the ongoing focus on health and wellness programs across all federal agencies, the survey will capture information regarding employee tobacco use and health demographics,” the memo continued.

The 2019 survey will be e-mailed to a nationwide over a four-week period, to a random sample of about 50,000 federal employees,
