Government Employees Get No Respect?

In the midst of the largest study Government Executive has ever conducted, on the subject of federal employee engagement, some interesting findings have been emerging. More than 21,000 federal employees have responded so far. Here's what they've told us:

  • About half say they receive the recognition they deserve for a job well done.
  • Almost three-fourths say that their colleagues respect their opinions.
  • Less than one-third say they hang out with their colleagues outside of work.

These results are not final yet. We still need to meet certain goals to generalize the results to all federal employees. If you’re one of the people who have already participated in the survey, thank you. If you’re not, we’d greatly appreciate your help. It only takes five minutes.
