SEC Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey

The Office of Personnel Management administered the 2015 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in May and June of 2015. The SEC’s employee response rate was 72 percent (1,921 responses), an increase of nine percentage points over 2014. The results demonstrate continued improvement for the SEC in several important FEVS indices, including Employee Engagement, Diversity and Inclusion, and Global Satisfaction, and can be attributed to a sustained effort by our employees and leadership teams to work together to create an environment that fosters employee engagement and supports the SEC’s commitment to excellence.

The agency-wide 2015 FEVS results are available here.
