FCC recognized for picking up its game


The Office of Management and Budget has released its latest federal employee job satisfaction study, and its finding is that out of the entire federal government, the FCC is the most improved agency.

The OMB finding was a result of its 2010 OPM Viewpoint Employee Satisfaction Survey.

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski commented, “I am delighted that the FCC has been recognized as the ‘most improved’ federal agency. The survey results reflect the hard work being done throughout the agency to make the FCC a model of excellence in government.”

He continued, “The FCC’s reform agenda, which builds on the impressive strides made by Commissioner Copps as acting chairman, includes creating new opportunities for employees to provide feedback; improving employee communication through technology and new media; and focusing on leadership development and opportunities for employees. I applaud the work of the FCC management and staff and look forward to more great things to come.”

FCC employees consistently gave the agency better scores across a wide range of topics than those given for the government as a whole.
