Best Places to Work 2020

DISA’s 2020 Best Places to Work engagement score, measuring employee satisfaction with their jobs and organization, increased to 74.0 in 2020 from 55.2 in 2019, a 19% increase moving from the lower quartile percentile to above the median. DISA employees rated the agency’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic particularly high with scores upwards of 92.0 in each COVID-19-related category. Overall, the 2020 government-wide score is 69 out of 100. 

The employee engagement score is calculated by the Partnership for Public Service and Boston Consulting Group and was released last week in its 2020 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® report.

The survey included 70 federal agencies and their subcomponents. This government-wide analysis began in 2003 and takes place every year measuring employee ratings of their respective agency. Categories include: effective leadership, teamwork, strategic management, employee recognition and more.

“Our mission of connecting and protecting the warfighter in cyberspace is more relevant than ever, and while the pace is often accelerated due to its changing nature, we strive to be nimble. Rapidly evolving cyber threats and the dynamic digital environments we operate in require that of us. We take care of the mission while taking care of each other, because we know that a healthy workforce that collaborates and communicates productively is the best formula for timely, highly successful mission effectiveness,”
said Laura Radney, DISA Chief of Staff.

“This survey tells us that we are fortunate to have an engaged and accomplished group of employees. They can overcome any adversity working together through trust, teamwork and communication. We are committed to our mission and supporting our workforce,”
continued Radney.
