Still Time to Fill Out Employee Survey

NIH employees still have time to participate in the 2016 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) if they have not done so already. It only takes 20-25 minutes to share your confidential feedback.

In 2015, NIH’s scores improved over 2014 and were higher than government and HHS-wide scores in every performance category. NIH ranked 81st in the Partnership for Public Service’s 2015 Best Places to Work rankings and third among public health agencies though, so we still have opportunities for improvement. Help make NIH an even more engaging and fulfilling place to work by sharing your perspective before FEVS closes on Thursday, June 16.

Eligible NIH employees (full- and part-time permanent, non-seasonal employees, hired by Oct. 31, 2015) should have received an email invitation from the Office of Personnel Management containing a link to participate in the survey. Search your email for a message with a subject line of “2016 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey - Empowering Employees. Inspiring Change!” sent from the “Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey-HE.” You may want to check your “junk email” folder as well. 

If you have any questions or problems accessing the survey, call (toll-free) 1-855-OPM-FEVS (1-855-676-3387) or email
