The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) last week announced that it will begin administering the 2021 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) during the first week of November. The government-wide survey asks employees about their views on work, agencies, supervisors and more. According to OPM, core questions on the 2021 survey will be similar to those on the 2020 FEVS, including pandemic-related questions. Invitations to participate in the survey will be sent in two waves and will be open for five weeks.
NTEU encourages employees to take the survey and respond candidly about conditions in the workplace, and in particular, their agency’s actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. FEVS may be taken by employees on duty time and responses are confidential.
