Federal Workforce Engagement Continues to Grow

Friday, October 13, 2017

While employee engagement scores have remained stagnant nationally, one sector is seeing growth year over year. Federal employee engagement rose for the third consecutive year, reaching the highest levels since 2011, according to the Office of Personnel Management’s Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. Overall, the engagement index rose two points from last year, hitting a six-year high of 67 percent. "While there have been gains during the past three years, there is still an urgent need for progress, especially when comparing the government to good private sector benchmarks," said Max Stier, the president and CEO of the Partnership for Public Service. "The Trump administration should aspire to make the federal government an employer of choice so that the American public benefits from the best service possible." Of federal agencies with at least 1,000 employees, the Federal Trade Commission has the highest engagement rate at 83 percent. Of agencies with between 10,000 and 74,999 employees, NASA posted the highest rate, with 82 percent. Of agencies with more than 75,000 employees, the Department of Health and Human Services had the highest score—72 percent.
