CBO is One of the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government

May 20, 2009

I am delighted to announce that this morning CBO was recognized bythe Partnership for Public Serviceasone of the "Best Places to Work in the Federal Government.CBO ranked third overall in the small agency category.

The Partnership uses the results of employee satisfaction surveys to evaluate agencies based on factors that create a positive work environment, such as employee skills/mission match, work/life balance, and effective leadership. Results for all participating federal agenciesare available at www.bestplacestowork.org. This was the first time CBO entered survey data in the rankings competition.

We credit these excellent results to our wonderful staff! In spite of the pressures we face daily with the increasing legislative demands and turnaround times, in the end, it is the people, how we work together, and how we care about each other that define CBO. I am so pleased that I have the good fortune to work with such terrific, dedicated, and intelligent colleagues.
