USAAA - Best Places to Work in the Federal Government; Six Consecutive Years
By Ms. Victoria Eby, AAADecember 30, 2015
U.S. Army Audit Agency (USAAA) has once again been named one of the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government by the Partnership for Public Service. USAAA placed 3rd out of 320 subcomponent organizations. This is the sixth consecutive year the agency has been officially recognized for placing in the top ranks of the Partnership's competition. The agency placed 2nd out of 224 subcomponent organizations in 2010 (the first year the agency competed in the rankings); 2nd out of 240 subcomponents in 2011; 1st out of 292 subcomponents in 2012; 3rd out of 300 subcomponents in 2013; and 5th out of 315 subcomponents in 2014. According to a Partnership representative, no other subcomponent organization has ever placed in the top five for 6 consecutive years. This is an impressive accomplishment and one that speaks to the high level of satisfaction staff have for the agency's mission of serving the Army's Soldiers, civilians, and families and helping Army leaders remain great stewards of the resources entrusted to it.
At the center of USAAA's success is its culture of family first, people always. Agency personnel feel as if they are part of a family and value the relationships they've built with their coworkers and peers. In addition, leadership is deeply committed to providing an optimum balance of work and life. This is evidenced through leadership's promotion of workplace flexibilities such as telework and flexible and compressed work schedules.
Released each year, the rankings are an important tool for ensuring that employee satisfaction is a top priority for government managers and leaders. On December 8, 2015, Mr. Randall Exley, The Auditor General, accepted the plaque on behalf of the Agency during a breakfast ceremony in the Ronald Reagan Building Pavilion Room. Also in attendance were Mr. Joseph Bentz, Principal Deputy Auditor General; Ms. Lisa Bryan, Auditor; and Mr. Dennis DeVore, Auditor.
