Scores and Rankings

Note about 2020 data
In 2020, the Partnership changed how it calculates the percentage of positive responses to the FEVS questions. Therefore, the 2020 scores should not be compared to scores from previous years. For more information, see the Methodology section.

Overall Engagement Score

The overall rankings are determined by the Best Places to Work employee engagement score, 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.
