September 10, 2010 -- Like many industries, federal agencies report on and track their progress on certain issues and compare where they stand in relation to each other.

One of the most comprehensive reports to do this is the annual Best Places to Work survey. Released by the Partnership for Public Service on September 1, the survey ranks agencies on employee satisfaction overall, but also has many subcategories, including strategic management, teamwork, and effective leadership.

This week on FEDtalk, host Bill Bransford will talk to Janelle Callahan of the Partnership for Public Service to learn more about the survey - who took the top spot and why; how the Partnership comes up with the rankings; and other trends in the survey this year.

They will also be joined by Julie Caldwell of the IRS's human resources department to discuss how agencies use the Best Places to Work survey.
