The Office of the Spokesperson announced, Aug. 24, that “Forbes Magazine” in partnership with Statista, has named the Department of State as one of America’s 2021 Best-In-State Employers for both Washington, D.C., and Virginia. The Department also ranked third in the Government Services category in both D.C. and Virginia. Approximately 80,000 American workers at U.S. companies (with more than 500 employees) were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employees also evaluated other employers in their respective industries and identified factors that stood out either positively or negatively. The survey considered every aspect of an employee’s experience, including working conditions, salary, potential for growth, and diversity. Of the thousands of companies eligible for this recognition, only a select few in each state receive the award. View the Forbes rankings, here.
