WASHINGTON – The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) is one of best places to work in the Federal Government, according to rankings produced by Partnership for Public Service from data provided by the Office of Personnel Management’s 2013 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. GPO was rated among the top ten best places to work among medium-sized Federal agencies. Some of the key areas GPO received high rankings include leadership policies and practices of communicating and listening to employees and using feedback to make changes, the embracing of teleworking and alternative work schedules, and emergency preparedness.

“This is wonderful news for GPO and our employees,” said Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. “This agency has made a commitment to listening and acting upon employees concerns. These results say that GPO’s culture is changing and that leadership is listening. We look forward to reviewing and acting on the survey results in the coming year.”
