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 5th out of 305 subcomponent organizations. This is the seventh consecutive year the agency has been officially recognized for placing in the top ranks of the Partnership's competition. The agency has placed in the top 5 of subcomponents, including a first place ranking in in 2012, since 2010, their first year competing in the competition. No other subcomponent organization has ever placed in the top five for 7 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 have 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 15, 2016, Agency representatives accepted the Best Places to Work plaque on behalf of the Agency's personnel during a breakfast ceremony in the National Press Club Ballroom in Washington D.C.
