An annual survey by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management of more than 400,000 workers across the Federal government has ranked the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) as one of the best places to work in the federal government among small agencies.
The FMCS has ranked at or near the top in the OPM ratings for small agencies in every year that data from the Agency has been included in the survey results.
The survey of government employees examines Federal workers’ perceptions of their organizations, leaders and work experiences.
According to the OPM survey report, overall Federal agencies’ scores in employee engagement, satisfaction and inclusion indices were up 1 percentage point from 2014 results.
Among large Federal agencies, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) ranked as top performers in the survey.
OPM said NASA gained the highest score among big agencies on the global employee satisfaction index, while FMCS achieved the best score among small units.
The OPM report ranked NASA and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency as the top scoring large and small agencies respectively for initiatives that encourage an inclusive workplace culture.
