What It Is: This is a ranking of employee engagement in the federal government.
Why It Matters To You: This ranking offers a comprehensive assessment of how federal public servants view their jobs and workplaces, providing employee perspectives on leadership, pay, innovation, work–life balance and other issues. Rankings are divided based on large, midsize, and small agencies (as well as subcomponents). Rankings can also be sorted by categories, such as leadership, strategic management, innovation, and work-life balance.
Considerations: Most of the data used to arrive at the rankings is based on the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey, collected yearly by the Office of Personnel Management. The key drivers of the index score are effective leadership, followed by employee skills-mission match, and pay. Previous rankings are not easily accessible although analysis from previous years is available.
