The results of the 2014 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey show fewer than half of federal employees think their senior leaders maintain high levels of honesty and integrity. It’s just one of the pieces of bad news in the new survey results that were released Oct. 24. Kathryn Medina of APCO Worldwide is former executive director of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council at the Office of Personnel Management. She told Francis Rose on In Depth that the only surprise is that the bad news isn’t worse.
Federal employees’ opinions of senior leaders are at a five-year low, based on the Office of Personnel Management’s survey of nearly 400,000 employees across government. More broadly, the survey suggests employees are even less enthusiastic about their jobs than they were last year, when OPM warned agencies to heed signs of low morale.
Dan Blair, president & CEO of the National Academy of Public Administration and former deputy director of the Office of Personnel Management, and Kathryn Medina, senior vice-president of Global Human Resources for APCO Worldwide and former executive director of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council, count down the week’s top federal stories with Francis Rose.
A little more than a month into Katherine Archuleta’s tenure at the Office of Personnel Management, the agency is staffing up and reshuffling a handful of leadership positions. Archuleta, who most recently worked as the national political director for President Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection effort, is bringing on board two fellow campaign staffers to serve as top advisers. The agency is also getting a new chief operating officer from within the ranks of the agency. Angela Bailey, the former associate director of employee services, has been named the agency’s new COO.
Medina’s last day at the Office of Personnel Management will be Jan. 3. She is leaving to join public relations firm APCO Worldwide as a senior human resources executive.
