USDA is ranked as a great place to work
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) received recognition for being “Most Improved” for very large Federal agencies in the Partnership for Public Service’s 2022 Best Places to Work Rankings. The department is now ranked at 12th among very large agencies in the Best Places to Work Rankings, up from 16th place in 2020.
“At USDA, we are committed to reaching new heights by cultivating a workplace environment that is collaborative, service-oriented, mission-centered, healthy, and inclusive,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “I am pleased to see these results as we strive to live up to our moniker as ‘the People’s Department,’ and we will continue to move forward with a strong commitment to making improvements on behalf of all employees, attracting talent that represents the diversity of America, and putting people at the center of everything we do.”
Additionally, USDA highlighted the high response rate received in the Office of Personnel Management Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey, which was administered between May and July of 2022. USDA says the final adjusted response rate outpaced large agency peers and government-wide percentages by double-digits.
