Forbes, in partnership with Statista, has named the U.S. Department of State as one of America’s Best Employers 2022.

Approximately 60,000 American workers at U.S. companies with more than 1,000 employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employer to friends and family.  Employees also evaluated other employers in their respective industries and identified factors that stood out either positively or negatively.

In total, 1,000 employers were recognized across 25 different industry sectors.

We are pleased to note that the Department of State ranked fifth out of 35 entities in the government services industry.
