GPO Secures Spot on Forbes' America's Best Employer List for Third Year in a Row

WASHINGTON —The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) has been named one of the best employers in America by Forbes for the third year in a row. GPO ranked in the top 15 amongst mid-sized agencies in Government Services. GPO joined the National Archives and Records Administration and Federal Communications Commission in the category for best Government agencies.

Forbes’ America’s Best Midsize Employers 2024:

“For three years in a row now, our teammates have rated GPO highly on this survey and landed GPO on America’s best employer list,” said GPO Director Hugh Nathanial Halpern. “Our team is full of top-notch craftspeople and professionals who embrace and carry out GPO’s values. GPO is a special place to work, and it’s all thanks to them. We look forward to continuing to take pride in our work and work together toward our common vision of an America Informed.”

GPO is working to build its team of the future with its Apprenticeship and Recent Graduate programs. In fiscal year 2023, GPO onboarded 190 teammates, 41 percent more than it did in the prior fiscal year. The Agency also produced a record number of passports in one year—more than 22 million—all while delivering products and services for all three branches of the U.S. Government.

Forbes and Statista selected America’s Best Employers 2024 based on results found through an independent survey of more than 170,000 U.S.-based workers at America companies. The evaluation was based on respondents who were asked to rate their employer and if they would recommend their employer to others. Organizations with 1,000 to 5,000 employees were deemed midsize employers. Responses were given by current employees, employees who had worked for the company within the past two years, and individuals familiar with the company through friends, family or peers in their industry.

GPO is the Federal Government’s resource for publishing trusted information for the Federal Government to the American people. The GPO is responsible for the production and distribution of information products and services for all three branches of the Federal Government, including U.S. passports for the Department of State as well as the official publications of Congress, the White House, and other Federal agencies in digital and print formats.
