USITC named one of government’s “Best Places to Work”Agency Ranked 2nd out of 28 Small Federal Agencies

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) is one of the top 10 best small federal government agencies to work for, according to the Partnership for Public Service’s 2017 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government. 

The agency was ranked #2 among the 28 small agencies included in the annual rankings produced by the Partnership for Public Service. In 2016 USITC ranked #5, with an index score of 78.9. For 2017, the USITC improved by 2 index points with an index score of 80.9.

The rankings measure federal employee job satisfaction and commitment and are based on responses submitted by federal employees to an annual government-wide Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey conducted by the Office of Personnel Management.  Additional survey data from eight agencies and the Intelligence Community also are included in the results.

The rankings cover 410 federal agencies and subcomponents.  The agencies are ranked by category based on size (large agency, mid-size agency, small agency, and federal subcomponent).  Agencies are scored for workplace satisfaction overall and in 10 workplace categories, such as effective leadership, pay, strategic management, training and development, teamwork, employee skills-mission match, and work-life balance.
