What Is Your Agency Doing Right?

Job satisfaction among federal workers dropped nearly across the board in 2013 -- a year marked by furloughs, a continuation of the pay freeze and proposals to reduce federal employee compensation, according to this year’s Federal Employees Viewpoint Survey released last month. And then, the government shut down for 16 days. But on the bright side, more than 90 percent of the survey’s participants reported a desire to put in extra effort, look for ways to do their jobs better and view their work as important, according to the Office of Personnel Management, which publishes the annual FEVS.

Management experts agree that there is a strong and vital link between employee empowerment and agency success. So, somebody somewhere in the federal government is doing something right. Tell us what keeps you engaged in your job, and suggest ways your agency can bring out the best in employees during these trying times.
