Casey and Maryanne Waller, Arc Aspicio’s Director of Talent and Operations, were recently showcased by SmartCEO in The Talent Issue, February 2010. Casey and Waller, along with Washington Capitals Owner Ted Leonsis, Baltimore Raven’s President Dick Cass and others, discussed the challenges in attracting and retaining the best talent. The article highlights Arc Aspicio’s approach to attracting people with outstanding leadership, technical, and functional skills.
This attitude is the driving force behind Arc Aspicio’s desire to constantly improve how the company aattracts, rewards, and retains talent. One example is Arc Aspicio’s career model that features two career tracks – one focused on consulting and another on specialty services, such as technology delivery and strategic communications. “The model is flexible and supports our employees in developing long successful careers at Arc Aspicio,” said Waller.
“We look for leadership at all levels – even in our junior associates,” said Casey. This approach allows the Arc Aspicio team to bring the right mix of technical and interpersonal skills to make an immediate impact on large, complex projects. “Our ability to bring the right talent is one of the key decision factors the Government uses in selecting our company to deliver solutions.”
In 2004, Casey founded Arc Aspicio to bring great talent to address the Government’s homeland security mission. In 2009, the company was named to the Inc. 5000 for exemplary growth and won the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Small Business Blue Ribbon for the third year in a row. Headquartered in VA, the company recently opened a second office in Washington, DC to accommodate 184% growth in 2009.
