WASHINGTON, D.C. —We thank all of you for your participation in the 2018 Employee Viewpoint Survey. This survey is designed to measure key components that contribute to the quality of our work environment and employee engagement at the USDA Forest Service. Our final numbers for this year are 40.0% of those who were randomly selected have completed the survey. This is a good participation rate, but I would really like to have input from all of you who were randomly selected to take the survey. Participation is anonymous and your input will be used to help us continue to improve.
This year, all employees who complete the survey also received a pilot version that will be used by OPM to improve the survey in 2019. We also want to thanks those who took the additional time to participate in the pilot survey as well and share your input to shape next year’s survey. Until
