The 12 Best Very Small Agencies to Work For in Government
March 20, 2013
There are a number of federal agencies with fewer than 100 employees, many of which are not widely known. But for their employees, their jobs and work environment are just as important as it is for those who spend their days serving the public at the huge departments like defense and veterans affairs.
For the second year in a row, the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings produced by the Partnership for Public Service and Deloitte included job satisfaction and commitment scores for these very small agencies. They range in size from the National Capital Planning Commission, which has only 36 employees, to the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board, which has 89 employees.
In 2012, the Office of Navajo and Hopi Indian Relocation topped the very small agency list with a Best Places to Work job satisfaction and commitment score of 90.1 on a scale of 100. Its mission is to assist Hopi and Navajo Indians impacted by the relocation that Congress mandated in 1974 for members of the tribes who were living on each other’s land.
