Abstract

This paper investigates the statistical relationship between federal employee performance and the reward for creativity and innovation. The study applies a cross-tabulation technique and the Pearson correlation coefficient for ordinal/nominal variables using data from 2018 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. A Chi Square non-parametric analysis was applied to corroborate the results of the Pearson correlation coefficient. In the second analysis, the study applies the Spearman rho correlation for ordinal variables to examine the relationship between the level of satisfaction of federal employees with the policies and practices of senior leaders and the overall quality of work done by the work units. In all cases, the hypothesis test indicates a statistically significant relationship and the rejection of the null hypothesis in favor of the alternative. The implication of these findings is that federal employee performance and length of service is enhanced by adequate reward for innovation and creativity.
