OPIC Voted Second Among Top Places to Work in Federal Government


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) is among the best places to work in the federal government, according to rankings issued by the Partnership for Public Service and American University’s Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation.

For the second consecutive year, OPIC finished second among 34 federal agencies with fewer than 2,000 employees in the Best Places to Work rankings, based on a survey conducted by theU.S. Office of Personnel Management. OPIC’s overall index score of 85.5 represented a nearly seven percent increase over the 2009 survey result, placing OPIC also among the top ten most-improved small agencies. The complete Best Places to Work rankings can be accessed at bestplacestowork.org.

“We are thrilled to be ranked among the best places to work in the federal government, a result which reflects OPIC’s ongoing effort to establish a workplace that is both welcoming and challenging, one that values equally individual performance and the sense of teamwork that is necessary to execute complicated projects in emerging markets,” said OPIC President and CEO Elizabeth Littlefield. “We deeply appreciate this recognition, and will continue to work hard to maintain our standard of excellence.”

Designed to help a broad audience of job seekers, researchers, federal employees and government leaders, the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® rankings produce detailed rankings of employee satisfaction and commitment across 290 federal agencies and subcomponents. Agencies are ranked according to a Best Places to Work index score, which measures overall employee satisfaction, an important part of employee engagement and, ultimately, a driver of organizational performance.
