I’ve always been proud to be an NRC employee. The agency works hard to create an environment that supports employee development, engagement, and overall job satisfaction. So, I was happy, although not surprised, to hear the results of the annual Federal Employee Viewpoint survey. Once again, the NRC ranked #1 in the four key areas developed by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
You are probably wondering what this survey is and what it means, so let me explain. OPM administers an annual Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey to all full-time federal employees. This survey was administered for the first time in 2002 and then repeated in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, and most recently in April/May of 2011. The survey is used to assess employee satisfaction with leadership, policies, and practices. Survey results provide valuable insight into the challenges agency leaders face in making sure the federal government has an effective civilian workforce.
The NRC’s uses the input to provide senior leaders with information to evaluate the success of ongoing efforts, and to design and implement new initiatives that will improve employee satisfaction. Past survey feedback has contributed to agency-wide improvements such as the “Let’s Talk!” Performance Management Training, financial seminars, and the NRC Internal Career Fair, just to name a few.
The Partnership for Public Service uses the results of the annual Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey to rank their Best Places to Work in the Federal Government. As you know for the last several year’s the NRC has been ranked #1 and we are anxiously awaiting the 2011 rankings, so stay tuned…
