2013 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey was conducted Government-wide by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) through an online survey conducted from April 23, 2013 – May 31, 2013. OPM sent the survey to all permanent full-time and part-time employees who were on our rolls as of October 31, 2012. This year, the USIBWC had a response rate of 84% as opposed to the overall small government agency rate of 71%.
The most improved areas for the USIBWC this year were: the sharing of job knowledge within work units, awards dependent on job performance, performance ratings comprehension, senior leader support for work/life programs and job satisfaction.
The areas that need improvement are: training satisfaction, physical work conditions, training needs assessment, use of employee talents in the workplace and belief that the survey would result in an improved work place environment.
Message from Commissioner Drusina
"As Commissioner, I am very proud of all employees of the USIBWC. I appreciate the hard work and the loyalty you show to the Agency each and every day. It is essential that you feel appreciated for being the high performers you are. It is very important that we treat each other with the respect and dignity we deserve. I am committed to all of us exhibiting strong ethics and honesty in everything we do. I have zero tolerance for prohibited personnel actions and not following the Merit System Principles. The Senior managers and I strongly believe we need to work together in developing these values throughout the organization until they become part of our identity.”
