The Best Places to Work results were posted today and topping the charts is the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Following the NRC, in the 2nd and 3rd best place to work in the federal government, is the Government Accountability Office and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
The survey, conducted by the Partnership for Public Service and American University’s Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation (ISPPI), was sent to over 263,000 civil servants to determine employee satisfaction and commitment across 290 federal agencies. The agencies are scored in a number of categories including training and development, effective leadership, teamwork, and strategic management.
An analysis of the results showed that, for the fifth time in a row, leadership was the main reason why many of the agencies’ overall scores greatly improved. The results from the leadership category reflect how much importance employees place on having effective leadership throughout the agency.

So how is your agency improving passion in the workplace?
