The Best Places to Work in the Federal Government – 2012 Rankings

Source: Partnership for Public Service

Designed to help a broad audience of government leaders, employees and job seekers, the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings draw on responses from nearly 700,000 civil servants to produce a detailed view of employee satisfaction and commitment across 362 federal agencies and subcomponents.

Employee satisfaction and commitment are two necessary ingredients in developing high-performing organizations and attracting top talent. The Best Places to Work rankings are an important tool for ensuring that employee satisfaction is a top priority for government managers and leaders. The rankings provide a mechanism to hold agency leaders accountable for the health of their organizations; serve as an early warning sign for agencies in trouble; offer a roadmap for improvement; and give job seekers insights into how federal employees view their agencies.

The Partnership for Public Service uses data from the Office of Personnel Management’s Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey to rank agencies and their subcomponents according to a Best Places to Work index score. Agencies and subcomponents not only are measured on overall employee satisfaction, but are scored in 10 workplace categories, such as effective leadership, employee skills/mission match, pay, teamwork and work/life balance.

The Best Places to Work rankings provide an overview of each agency and subcomponent, trend data and expert analysis of what the results mean. Users can conduct side-by-side comparisons of how agencies or their subcomponents ranked in various categories, examine how they compare to other agencies and see whether they have improved or regressed over time.
