NR 15-19

Contact: Karen V. Gregory, Secretary, (202) 523-5725

The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is pleased to announce that the agency has received an award for being the 2015 Most Improved Small Agency, presented at a ceremony this morning to recognize Best Places to Work in the Federal Government. The Partnership for Public Service and Deloitte today released their 2015 rankings that provide a comprehensive and authoritative rating of employee satisfaction across agencies in the Federal government.

The 2015 Best Places to Work report analyzes data from the Office of Personnel Management’s Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey and provides rankings in 14 categories. The Commission achieved positive gains in all 14 categories measured. More than half of those categories saw double digit improvement while Effective Leadership (Empowerment) saw the greatest gain with a 19.7 point increase over 2014. Scores for Strategic Leadership, Training and Development, and Support for Diversity were among those measures receiving significant increases.

“I am extremely proud of the work the FMC has done to achieve this prestigious recognition,” said FMC Chairman Mario Cordero. “Our small but dedicated staff of 125 employees has one of the most important tasks in the country to ensure fair, efficient and reliable international ocean transportation for our Nation. I want to recognize the support of the Commissioners, senior executives, and the entire staff. I am fortunate to work with such a dedicated group committed to continuously improving our performance on behalf of the American public. I humbly accept this award on their behalf, with a commitment to strive for even greater excellence.”
