This is a supplement to our report, Securities and Exchange Commission: Personnel Management Shows Improvement, but Action Needed on Performance Management System, GAO-20-208. It provides the results from our web-based surveys of employees on their views about SEC’s organizational culture and other aspects of working there, such as training, intra-agency communication, leadership, and performance management.

We surveyed mission-critical employees—877 nonexecutives and 80 senior officers. About two-thirds of each responded to the surveys.
