WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio –
The Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey, administered annually by the Office of Personnel Management, serves as a vital tool for assessing the organizational climate within federal agencies. Designed to gather valuable feedback from civilian employees, the survey aims to understand experiences, perceptions, and opinions regarding various aspects of the work environment, agency, and leadership.
What is the FEVS?
The FEVS, formerly known as the Federal Human Capital Survey (FHCS), was first conducted in 2002. As an organizational climate survey, the FEVS assesses how employees collectively experience their agency's policies, practices, and leadership and offers essential information for driving organizational change and development initiatives.
Why is FEVS important?
The information gathered by the survey plays a valuable role in improving the work environment for all employees. Through sharing perceptions and insights, participants contribute by identifying areas for suggested improvement.
Within Air Force Materiel Command, previous survey feedback led to the creation of several initiatives, including new recognition programs, AcqDemo flexibilities, a revamped supervisory development course, AFMC Connect, and more.
Who is eligible to participate and how do you take the survey?
Civilian employees who were onboard with Department of the Air Force as of Nov. 30, 2022, are eligible and encouraged to take part in the FEVS. Participants will receive survey invitations and reminders via email, containing a unique survey link. If employees don’t see the invitation, they should check their Outlook Inbox and Spam/Junk folders for emails from "OPM Federal Employee Survey." Those who believe they are eligible but have not received the survey invitation may contact the OPM FEVS Helpdesk at EVAF@OPM.gov for assistance.
The DAF 2023 FEVS administration period concludes at 11:59 p.m. EST on June 23, 2023. Although participation is voluntary it is highly encouraged.
