The third National Partnership for Reinventing Government (NPR) Employee Survey, conducted in September 2000, gathered feedback from employees representing 1,382,467 full-time federal executive branch civilian employees to help agencies focus on key employee satisfaction issues, to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of government service and thereby better serve customers, and to assess the progress of agencies' organizational changes -- especially in relation to efforts to reinvent internal operations. NPR sought to use the survey results to produce a federal government that worked better and cost less. Respondents answered questions such as, "How would you rate the overall quality of work done in your work group?" and "Do you have electronic access to information needed to do your job?" Respondents also rated their agreement with statements, such as, "Supervisors/team leaders understand and support employees' family/personal life responsibilities." Additionally, respondents were asked to what extent their organization performed such tasks as implementing simplified travel regulations or streamlining the process for hiring employees. Also, respondents rated their overall satisfaction with their job, their involvement in decisions that affected their work, and the recognition they received for doing a good job. Finally, respondents rated the overall performance of their immediate supervisor/team leader, as well as the overall quality of work being done in their work group.
