The sequester is upon us. Budgets are being slashed, pay is frozen and your agency is not hiring anyone. Yet despite all of that, you have a job to do. The only question is, do you have the resources you need to get the job done? Are your workloads increasing?
The results of the government’s latest Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey suggest this is a problem across the government. The percentage of employees who disagree or strongly disagree with the statement “I have sufficient resources to get my job done” climbed from 34.1 percent in 2011 to 35.1 percent in 2012. And the percentage of employees who disagree or strongly disagree that “My workload is reasonable” also increased from 24 percent in 2011 to 24.9 percent last year.
We are interested in hearing from you all about these issues — especially if you work at the Veterans Affairs, Agriculture or Housing and Urban Development departments.
