The Partnership for Public Service and American University’s Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation have announced the results of the 2010 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government ranking, and the Department of State has once again ranked in the top 10, placing seventh overall among the 31 large Federal agencies, third for effective leadership, and fourth among Hispanics.

Rankings are based on the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s Employee Viewpoint Survey of 263,000 executive branch employees in over 290 federal organizations, conducted in February – March 2010.

Best Places to Work is the most comprehensive ranking of federal government organizations on overall employee engagement, as well as in ten work environment categories. The rankings are designed to offer job seekers unprecedented insight into the best opportunities for public service and to provide managers and government leaders a roadmap for improving employee engagement and commitment.
