OCC Makes Top Ten List for Best Places to Work in Federal Government

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ranked 4th out of more than 200 federal agency components for best places to work in the federal government in 2006, according to the Partnership for Public Service and American University's Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation.

"Placing among the best government agencies for the third year in a row is a great honor and demonstrates the OCC's commitment to being a world-class organization and creating a professional, supportive environment that employees appreciate," said Comptroller of the Currency John C. Dugan. "The fact that the results are based on what employees have to say makes this honor even more meaningful."

Released today, the list reflects the responses of more than 221,000 randomly selected federal employees who completed the Office of Personnel Management's 2006 Federal Human Capital Survey. The list compares agencies in 10 categories: effective leadership, employee skills/mission match, family friendly culture, pay and benefits, performance-based rewards and advancement, strategic management, support for diversity, teamwork, training/development, and work/life balance.

The OCC ranked in the top ten in 8 of 10 categories including: 1st in support for diversity, 2nd in strategic management, 3rd in training and development, 3rd in family friendly culture and benefits, 4th in pay and benefits, 6th in teamwork, 9th in effective leadership, and 10th in performance based awards and advancement.
