Scores and Rankings

Overall Engagement and Satisfaction Score

The overall rankings are determined by the Best Places to Work employee engagement and satisfaction scores, calculated by the Partnership for Public Service and Boston Consulting Group.
The index score is not a combined average of an agency’s category scores. It is calculated using a proprietary weighted formula that looks at responses to three different questions in the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. The more the question predicts intent to remain, the higher the weighting.

• I recommend my organization as a good place to work. (Q. 17)
• Considering everything, how satisfied are you with your job? (Q. 36)
• Considering everything, how satisfied are you with your organization? (Q. 38)
