About the FEVS
The Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) measures employees’ perceptions of whether, and to what extent, conditions characteristic of successful organizations are present in their agencies.
It serves as a tool for employees to share their perceptions in many critical areas including their work experiences, their agency, and leadership, and the results provide agency leaders insight into areas where improvements have been made, as well as areas where improvements are needed.
It was first administered in 2002 as the Federal Human Capital Survey (FHCS), and then again in 2004, 2006 and 2008. It was renamed to the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey in 2010 revised to focus more on actionable items.
