FERC Gets Top Rankings in Employee Satisfaction, Commitment Survey
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) ranked No. 5 out of 25 mid-sized agencies in employee satisfaction and commitment, according to the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service 2014 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government survey. In addition, FERC’s Office of General Counsel ranked No. 1 among agency subcomponents for this year’s survey.
FERC scored 73.3 out of 100 on the survey’s employee satisfaction and commitment score, in the top 25 percent of mid-size agencies, an increase of 1.7 points over last year.
Many issues – from pay to teamwork to strategic management – influenced how employees view their workplaces and rate their satisfaction and commitment. FERC scored highest, 77.5 out of 100, in work-life balance, and scored 78.6 among veterans.
FERC’s Office of General Counsel earned its No. 1 ranking among agency subcomponents with a score of 88.8 out of 100, earning particularly high scores in several areas of effective leadership, work-life balance, teamwork, strategic management and support for diversity.
“I am honored about FERC’s excellent rankings in the Best Places to Work survey," said FERC Chairman Cheryl A. LaFleur. “I am proud to lead an organization where employees feel valued and committed to their work. I especially congratulate the Office of General Counsel on its top score.”
Produced by the Partnership and Deloitte, the Best Places to Work rankings provide critical information to help agencies, the administration and Congress assess workplace health and performance. The rankings measure overall satisfaction and commitment and employee attitudes on 10 workplace categories, including leadership, teamwork, strategic management and innovation.
