As a Leader in Government Innovation, GSA Named Among the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government

Partnership for Public Service ranked the agency sixth in mid-sized federal agencies

WASHINGTON, DC -- As GSA continues its pioneering leadership in government innovation, the Partnership for Public Service recently announced that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) was named one of the best places to work in the federal government. GSA was awarded the sixth best place to work in the 2020 mid-sized agency category, one spot better than the year before. The rankings, produced by the Partnership for Public Service, provide an overview of employee perspectives on innovation, leadership, pay, work–life balance and a range of other issues.

The rankings reflect the work GSA has done to help with the federal government’s COVID-19 response, including high scores in leadership and availability of job resources during the pandemic. It also noted the strides the agency has made in innovation and agency performance.

“The past year has been challenging for all of us, and I could not be more proud of the team at GSA for continuing to deliver for our partner agencies and for taxpayers,” said Administrator Carnahan.

Overall, the agency scored better across all categories than at any other point in the past eight years. The Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) reflected many of the challenges of the past year and included questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
