SUBJECT: Peace Corps Ranks Third in Best Places to Work in the Federal Government
I’m thrilled to share with you that the results of the annual survey of 2014 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government are in. The Peace Corps is ranked third among 30 small agencies-up from fourth place last year. Our employee satisfaction and commitment score is 82.8 out of 100, placing the Peace Corps in the very top of all small agencies. This is the fifth year in a row that the Peace Corps ranked in the top five agencies and we’ve only been participating for five years.
Our employee satisfaction and commitment score improved by 4.6 points since last year. The government-wide satisfaction and commitment score is 56.9, down 0.9 points from last year. That places our 2014 score 25.9 points higher than the government-wide score.
We plan to carefully analyze the survey results to determine how we can further improve workplace quality and achieve an even higher level of employee satisfaction in the future.
Thanks to each of you for the outstanding job you do every day to make the Peace Corps a wonderful place to work! I know that every day I wake up and am grateful that I serve this incredible agency and its dedicated and compassionate staff.
