GAO is a Great Place to Work
The Partnership for Public Service in 2020 named GAO the number one place to work among mid-sized agencies in its annual Best Places to Work in the Federal Government rankings. GAO also has consistently ranked number one in support of workplace diversity for mid-size federal agencies when the Partnership released such rankings.
Here are some reasons why GAO is such a great place to work:
- Diverse, talented staff: We make it a priority to recruit and retain a diverse, highly professional, motivated, and multi-disciplinary workforce. Our staff brings expertise to the table in accounting, law, engineering, public and business administration, economics, information technology, the social and physical sciences, and other disciplines. Additionally, our employees have a range of educational backgrounds and prior work experiences, including advanced degrees and work in specialized areas.
- Inclusive work environment: We strive to enhance and sustain a GAO-wide culture that is fair, diverse, and inclusive and provides opportunities for all staff to excel.
- Work/life balance: We focus on work/life balance, with flexible schedules, generous leave and paid holidays, and telework opportunities.
- Union representation: Most analysts, specialists, and operations staff at GAO are represented by the GAO Employees Organization, International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE) Local 1921.
