We’re Prepared, Are you?

FedViews has been updated to include important changes OPM has made to FEVS 2020. When results from the survey are released, Federal agencies can use FedViews to automate analyses of the new streamlined survey, as well as new questions about the effects of COVID-19 on Federal employees.


With FedViews, Federal agencies can analyze employee perceptions of work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 has disrupted daily routines, eliminated in-office interactions, and upended work-life balance for Federal employees. In response to the pandemic, Federal agencies have reinvented human capital management to accommodate mandatory remote work, virtual collaboration, and purely digital communication.

FedViews allows Federal agencies to analyze FEVS 2020 questions about employee perceptions of work during the pandemic. These analyses will support agencies as they determine efficient and effective strategies for managing a highly engaged remote workforce.

Federal agencies can use FedViews to analyze results from the new streamlined FEVS.

To reduce response burden, OPM streamlined FEVS from 71 to 38 core questions in 2020. FedViews analyzes the new streamlined survey while also providing historical results based on the older, longer survey. With analyses of current and historical FEVS at hand, Federal agencies can use FedViews to evaluate the effectiveness of ongoing human capital management strategies and use information from FedViews to support their goals and mission.

FedViews helps you focus your resources where it counts.

FedViews is uniquely positioned to help agencies understand and address their human capital management challenges in the face of 2020 and beyond by providing FEVS and workforce data analyses, as well as subject matter expertise, to guide workforce management practices that promote a safe, equitable, engaging, and inclusive work environment for all employees, even in the face of an emergency.
