FCC rated “Most Improved Federal Agency”

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been voted the “most improved” federal agency in the entire federal government, according to the 2010 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey of employee satisfaction.

According to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which oversees employee administration issues for the federal government, the bi-annual survey measures “employees’ perceptions of whether, and to what extent, conditions that characterize successful organizations are present in their agencies.”  OPM uses the data from the Viewpoint Survey to develop strategies to improve individual agency performance.

“The survey results reflect the hard work being done throughout the agency to make the FCC a model of excellence in government,” said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski in a prepared statement.  “The FCC’s reform agenda…includes creating new opportunities for employees to provide feedback, improving employee communications through technology and new media, and focusing on leadership development and opportunities for employees.”
