Last week the Partnership for Public Service released this year's list of the Best Places to Work in the federal government. These rankings can serve as a recruiting tool for agencies, said Tim McManus, vice president for education and outreach at the Partnership, in an interview with In Depth with Francis Rose.

McManus said the issues employees value are the same ones that job seekers look for.

"Whether it's support for diversity, work/life balance or teamwork, Best Places to Work allows job seekers to look at and compare agencies through the lens that matters most to them-the views of employees," McManus writes in AOL Gov.
