Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) to a random sample of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees. We hope that every Coast Guard employee surveyed will take the time to entrust us with your valuable feedback so that we can continue to make the Coast Guard a better place to work. Based on previous FEVS results, Coast Guard leadership has implemented several improvements.
