The staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission has received further accolades for their steady teamwork approach to protecting America’s investors as the agency ranked as one of the top five mid-size federal workplaces in government.
According to the 2020 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government rankings, which are compiled by the nonpartisan, nonprofit Partnership for Public Service, the SEC ranked fourth out of 25 mid-size agencies, just 1.5 points out of the third spot and less than four points away from the top of the rankings.
The SEC’s “engagement score” was 85.7, well above the government-wide average of 69.0.
“This honor is a testament to the SEC staff’s teamwork, dedication, and service to American investors,” said SEC Chair Gary Gensler. “They are the reason the SEC is one of the best places to work. I congratulate them on this achievement and thank them for their work on behalf of the public.”
The SEC finished first among all mid-size agencies in the category of “Work-Life Balance” that measures the extent to which employees consider their workloads reasonable and feasible, and managers support a balance between work and life.
The SEC also had three divisions/offices rank among the top 10 in government for the “agency subcomponents” category, the most by any agency in government. The SEC’s Office of Support Operations ranked fourth with a score of 91.3, and the Division of Investment Management and the Office of General Counsel ranked sixth and seventh, respectively.
