I am delighted to announce that, for the second year in a row, CBO has been recognized by the Partnership for Public Service as one of the "Best Places to Work in the Federal Government." We were ranked third among 34 agencies in the small agency category.
The Partnership says that its goal is "to ensure our government has the right talent with the right skills to meet the extraordinary challenges it faces." To do this, it uses survey results to gauge employee satisfaction in a variety of categories. You can see the results for all participating federal agencies at www.bestplacestowork.org.
I think these ratings are a collective accomplishment of everyone at CBO: It is the way that we work together, treat each other as colleagues, and care about each other as people, that creates the special environment at CBO. I feel very lucky to be here, and I am glad that so many other people at CBO seem to feel that way too.
