About this Report
The 2011 Employee Viewpoint Survey (EVS) provides an opportunity for Department of Transportation (DOT) employees to contribute to shaping DOT’s culture and work environment. By gathering information about how employees regard their work experience at DOT, the Department hopes to design management best practices and work environments that better suit employee needs, while ensuring positive organizational outcomes.
After last year’s survey, DOT was recognized as one of the most improved agencies in the federal government, and the 2011 EVS results continued to reflect some modest increases in positive response rates. Generally, in areas where DOT has historically performed well it continued to do so, and the same can be said for survey items where the Department tends to perform more negatively. DOT’s actions taken based on previous survey results have had a positive impact and the significant increase in survey scores in 2010 were maintained in 2011.
