U.S.: What Feds Are Thinking About Workplace

Focus: Institution and HR Management
Country: United States

What: The Office of Personnel Management's "2012 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey Results" shares the perspectives of government workers on supervision, leadership and a host of special topics, such as teleworking and part-time employment.

Why: OPM has conducted the survey annually since 2002. This year, more than 687,000 federal employees participated, the highest number so far. Although specific results vary by agency and even among agency components, the report concludes that feds are hardworking, motivated and mission-focused. However, satisfaction with pay and overall morale have declined.

Verbatim: "This year the steady trend of improvement has changed; governmentwide scores have dropped on every index, and 36 items decreased between two and five percentage points from 2011 to 2012. While the federal workforce still holds strong and positive views on many critical items, the combined voices of more than 687,000 employees cannot be dismissed."
