2012 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey was conducted Government-wide by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) through an online survey conducted from April 4, 2012 – May 16, 2012. OPM sent the survey to all permanent fulltime and parttime employees who were on our rolls as of October 31, 2011. This year IBWC had a response rate of 71% as opposed to the Government-wide response rate of 46%.
The most improved areas for IBWC this year were: training needs being assessed; the work unit being able to recruit people with the right skills; employees being protected from health and safety hazards on the job; the organization preparing employees for potential security threats; supervisors/team leads supporting employee development; satisfaction with the policies and practices of the senior leaders; and employees satisfaction with the training received for their present job.
The areas that need improvement are: having sufficient resources (for example, people, materials, budget) to get the job done; promotions in the work unit are based on merit; differences in performance are recognized in a meaningful way; pay raises depend on how well employees perform their jobs; creativity and innovation are rewarded; and satisfaction with the opportunity to get a better job in the organization.
Message from Commissioner Drusina
"As Commissioner, I am very proud of all employees of the USIBWC. I appreciate the hard work and the loyalty you show to the Agency each and every day. It is essential that you feel appreciated for being the high performers you are. It is very important that we treat each other with the respect and dignity we deserve. I am committed to all of us exhibiting strong ethics and honesty in everything we do. I have zero tolerance for prohibited personnel actions and not following the Merit System Principles. The Senior managers and I strongly believe we need to work together in developing these values throughout the organization until they become part of our identity.”
