2023 FEVS Survey Results

Each year, the NIH conducts the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS), a confidential online survey of its eligible federal employees. The survey is administered by OPM and assesses how NIH is doing in providing a positive, healthy, and innovative work environment. The ultimate goal of the survey is to provide NIH and our Institutes and Centers with information to build on our strengths and improve some of our challenge areas.
