NASA Voted Best Place To Work In Federal Government
The Partnership for Public Service and the American University Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation (ISPPI) released today the second set of rankings of the "Best Places to Work in the Federal Government." Young people, women and minorities selected NASA as the best place to work in the federal government.

The rankings were compiled from an employee satisfaction survey administered to more than 100,000 federal employees by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. With the new rankings, job seekers will be able to see, for the first time, which federal agencies are rated best by employees under 40, minorities, women and a variety of other groups.

"We're very proud and excited to learn of the rankings. NASA values the diversity of thought, ideas and perspectives so essential to an R&D organization. We strongly believe an inclusive One-NASA environment, in which all employees are treated fairly, respected by management and their peers, and valued for their contribution to the agency’s mission, is critical to success," said Vicki Novak, NASA's Associate Administrator, Office of Human Resources.
