Deloitte Sponsors 2013 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government


Deloitte is proud to sponsor the 2013 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government ® (Best Places) rankings, a program designed to help a broad audience of job seekers, researchers, federal employees, and government leaders.

The vast majority of the data used to develop the Best Places rankings was collected by the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS). The FEVS was conducted April 4 through May 31, 2013, and administered online to 540,727 full-time, permanent executive branch employees. The survey was completed by 266,376 federal workers, for a response rate of 49.3 percent. For further details, see Best Places methodology.

Best Places is a product of the Partnership for Public Service (the Partnership), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that seeks to revitalize our federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and transform the way government works.
