WASHINGTON – The SEC was recently named among the top five places to work in the federal government in a study conducted by the Partnership for Public Service and U.S. News and World Report. The agency scored high marks for its employee skills and mission match; pay and benefits; teamwork; strategic management; training and development; support for diversity; and effective leadership, according to the study. SEC Chairman Christopher Cox said he is “immensely proud that the SEC has achieved this distinction. “The Commission has implemented or expanded many new human capital programs including a more competitive pay structure, the SEC University, telework, fitness centers, vision and dental benefits, and emergency child care. These programs enable the SEC’s employees to stay healthy, achieve a balance between work and family, and move forward in their professional careers, Cox said. “Almost everyone who works here could earn more in the private sector,” Cox said. “We are all here because we want to be.” The study ranked the top 30 places to work in the federal government. The Office of Management and Budget ranked first while the SBA ranked 30th. Complete results, compiled in a joint study conducted by the Partnership for Public Service and the Institute for Study of Public Policy Implementation and based on data from the 2004 Federal Human Capital Survey, can be accessed at www.bestplacestowork.org.
