The FRTIB values feedback we receive from our participants. We design surveys to gauge participants' reactions to potential enhancements to the TSP so that we can tailor our offerings and services to better fit our participants' needs.
Ensuring that the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board (FRTIB) is a great place to work is a goal identified in our Agency's strategic plan. To achieve this goal, FRTIB continues to reach out to employees to gather feedback regarding their needs and concerns. This past April, we conducted the 2012 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) and had a 66.7% response rate. While the response rate was not as high as the previous year, we continue to receive positive feedback. Two areas of note are Employee Engagement and Global Satisfaction.
While the FEVS does not directly measure employee engagement, the survey does assess the critical conditions conducive for employee engagement — conditions which would be expected to lead to engaged employees (effective leadership, meaningful work, and the opportunity for employees to learn and grown on the job). The FRTIB employee responses indicate positive conditions (77%) for Employee Engagement and rated above or equal to the government-wide average on all 15 questions that make up the Employee Engagement Index.
The Global Satisfaction is a combination of employees' satisfaction with their job, their pay, and their organization, plus their willingness to recommend their organization as a good place to work. The overall Global Satisfaction rating for FRTIB is 75%, which is above the government-wide average of 63%. FRTIB ratings of organization satisfaction (78%) are up 16 percentage points from 2011 and a strong majority of FRTIB employees said they would recommend the FRTIB as a good place to work (79%). Employees' satisfaction with their job (82%) continues to increase, up 13 percentage points from 2010. While satisfaction with pay (62%) remained constant, the FRTIB ratings are above the government-wide average of 58.8%.
As we move forward with our human capital strategy initiative, we will continue to incorporate employee feedback from the survey to strengthen our human capital efforts. Below is the link to our FRTIB 2012 FEVS Results:
