Intelligence Community Named a "Best Place to Work"

for the 11th Consecutive Year


The Partnership for Public Service Presents Awards to
Federal Government Leaders in Washington, D.C.


WASHINGTON, D.C. – For the 11th consecutive year, Intelligence Community (IC) employee job satisfaction ranks the IC as one of the “Best Places to Work in the Federal Government.”


The IC ranked third overall, up from fifth last year, among large agencies that employ more than 15,000 full-time permanent employees. Rankings were compiled by the Partnership for Public Service (PPS), which presented awards to agency leaders at a Washington, D.C., ceremony today. Andrew Hallman, Principal Executive for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, accepted the award on behalf of the IC.


Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire lauded members of the IC workforce for their consistent professionalism and hard work.


“I am extremely proud of, and impressed by, the intelligence professionals I get to lead. This award speaks to their dedication, determination and commitment to serving their country,” Maguire said. “The Intelligence Community works to stay out of the news. Today we are happy to make an exception to highlight our unmatched mission and world-class workforce.”


These rankings provide insight into how employees view their agency leaders and work environment. Scores are broken down into 14 individual categories — in such areas as effective leadership, innovation, work-life balance and support for diversity.


For 2019, the IC finished in the top two in 12 out of 14 categories, four more than last year. This year the IC improved across all 14 categories, with an average improvement of 2.6%.


PPS is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that aims to revitalize the federal government by transforming the way government works and inspiring a new generation to serve.

The institute conducts research and helps federal leaders solve difficult public-policy issues. According to PPS, the Best Places to Work rankings are “the most comprehensive and authoritative rating of employee satisfaction and commitment in the federal government” and “are an important tool for ensuring that employee satisfaction is a top priority for government managers and leaders.” For more details, please visit http://bestplacestowork.org.
