SEC Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) administered the 2019 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) from the end of May, through the beginning of July of 2019. We are very pleased that our survey results in the past year remained strong, and we will continue to utilize the FEVS results to help us focus on areas where we can improve. Our 2019 FEVS scores across our four key indices were as follows:
- In the Employee Engagement Index, our positive score was 76%.
- In the New IQ Index (Leader Effectiveness Index), our positive score was 69%.
- In the Global Satisfaction Index, our positive score was 75%.
- The SEC’s Overall FEVS Average (across all 71 core items) was 72%.
The SEC’s scores on the FEVS indices remain significantly higher than the government-wide average, demonstrating once again that the SEC is an employer of choice within the federal government. These results would not be possible were it not for the efforts of hundreds of managers, frontline staff and union representatives that team up to improve employee satisfaction and engagement. We are especially gratified that 75% of eligible employees participated in the survey. That’s one of the highest response rates across the entire federal government.
