NCUA employees had the opportunity to respond to the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey from May 1–June 12, 2018. The NCUA’s response rate was 58 percent, much higher than the overall federal government rate of 40.6 percent, which speaks well for our employees’ willingness to participate in this important exercise.
The agency had 41 items identified as strengths and no challenges. Ninety-six percent of our employees participating in the survey said they were willing to put in extra effort to complete a job, and 91 percent said they are constantly looking for ways to do their jobs better. We also saw strong results for employee satisfaction in 13 areas.
In an effort to continually improve employee satisfaction, all NCUA offices will be implementing Workforce Engagement Action Plans by the end of 2018. Offices will be focusing on the Employee Engagement Index.
The Office of Minority and Women Inclusion promotes engagement through inclusion. Employee Resource Groups, Special Emphasis Programs, and other programs are designed to create an environment where employees feel valued, respected, and able to contribute to their full potential.
One such program, VIBE, is an employee-focused effort to enhance engagement by focusing on four key behaviors that boost engagement and inclusion: Valuing differences, Intentionally including, Breaking biases, and Embracing change.
NCUA’s senior leaders take great pride in the professionalism, dedication and commitment of our employees. We are committed to enhancing employee satisfaction with their jobs and their work/life balance.
