The 2018 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) is scheduled to open the week of May 7 and will remain open until the week of June 18. This is your opportunity to provide input on a variety of topics within your organization, including: work experience, leadership, diversity and inclusion.

Eligible NIH employees (full- and part-time permanent, non-seasonal employees, on-board on or before Oct. 28, 2017) should receive an email invitation from the Office of Personnel Management containing a unique link to participate in the survey. The survey takes 20-25 minutes to complete and responses will be confidential.

In 2017, the NIH response rate increased by 5.6 percent to 57.1 percent. This year, NIH director Dr. Francis Collins set a goal of 60 percent employee participation.
