NSF 2014 Survey Results Summary

NSF is pleased to present its 2010 to 2014 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) results. In 2014, NSF continued to build upon improvements in employee satisfaction observed in 2013. Highlights from NSF's 2014 FEVS results include:

  • NSF had the highest permanent employee response rate of all large/independent agencies for the second consecutive year, allowing NSF to perform more comprehensive analyses and action planning efforts;
  • NSF composite scores increased in six of seven survey areas (i.e., My Work Experiences; My Work Unit; My Agency; My Supervisor/Team Leader; Leadership; My Satisfaction). Additionally, percent positive scores (i.e., percentage of users that "strongly agree" and "agree") increased in 65 of the 77 survey items;
  • NSF's most significant improvements from 2013 to 2014 relate to: 1) employee development, including assessment of employee training needs; 2) recognizing and rewarding employee performance; and 3) communication practices of NSF senior leaders. These were all areas of focus for the Foundation in recent years as a result of feedback from NSF employees via previous years' FEVS results; and
  • NSF employees continue to feel a strong connection to NSF's mission, and agree that the Foundation is successful in accomplishing its mission.

NSF will continue its ongoing efforts to provide employees with access to all FEVS data, and will use these data to develop action plans at the organizational and Foundation-wide level to influence meaningful change.
