									New Infographic from Graduate School USA Illustrates Office Dynamics in Federal Workplace


Many respondents view managers in a favorable light; feel supported by their leaders

Online PR News – 27-June-2013 – WASHINGTON, DC – A new infographic released by Graduate School
USA, visually captures the attitudes federal employees have about their jobs, supervisors and opportunities
for personal career development. The School’s infographic crystallized key measures around leadership and
training included in the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. The survey, conducted annually by the Office of
Personnel Management (OPM), “measures employees’ perceptions of whether, and to what extent,
conditions characterizing successful organizations are present in their agencies,” as stated by OPM. More
than 687,000 people responded to the 2012 survey, more than double the number of respondents from the
year before. Out of those surveyed, more than two-thirds stated they were satisfied with their job.


While there are ongoing differences of opinion in our national’s capital about the size of the federal
workforce, we here at Graduate School USA find these survey results encouraging and insightful,”
said Jim Huske, senior Vice President at Graduate School USA. “Clearly, the need for training among
federal employees is stronger than ever.

The infographic highlights various areas, including office leadership, development, and performance on the
job. According to the survey, 65% viewed their managers’ leadership skills favorably, while the same
percentage felt management supported their development as employees. More than three-fourths of the
survey takers discussed their job performance with their bosses in the prior six months. The full infographic
can be found on the School’s website.
