Arc Aspicio Employees Win Award for Corporate Social Responsibility

Arc Aspicio Employees Win Award for Corporate Social Responsibility

Arlington, VA, June 23, 2011 – The HR Leadership Awards of Greater Washington (HRLA) selected Arc Aspicio as the 2011 winner of the Corporate Social Responsibility award. Chief Executive Officer Lynn Ann Casey and Community Involvement Lead Emily Tiedeman won as a team dedicated to community service at the tenth annual awards ceremony. Maryanne Waller, the Director of Talent and Operations, was also an honoree in the Leadership and Strategic Alignment categories.

Established in 2001, the HR Leadership Awards recognize human resource executives who make extraordinary contributions to their organizations. The Corporate Social Responsibility award honors an individual, team, or organization for leadership, dedication, and achievements that help create positive change in the community.

“It is exciting to be recognized for our community involvement program. Community involvement has been a cornerstone of Arc Aspicio’s culture since the company was founded in 2004.” —Emily Tiedeman, Community Involvement Lead

Arc Aspicio is proud to support the homeland security and local community through programs such as the Annual Wreath Laying at Arlington Cemetery, food and goods drives for the DC Central Kitchen, and the Girl Scouts Emergency Preparedness Patch Program.

The center of the company’s community involvement strategy is a partnership with the  National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) for the past four years. Employees selected SDF because of a shared love of dogs and because the SDF's mission of training search and rescue dogs aligns with the company’s focus on homeland security. In 2011, Arc Aspicio met its goal of raising enough money to sponsor a search dog through SDF.

Confessions of a Chief Strategy Officer

Confessions of a Chief Strategy Officer

I’ll admit it, I was a little smug. After more than 20 years in the consulting business helping clients develop, implement, and integrate their strategies, I thought… “how hard could it be to do the same things for my own company – a company of consultants?” I had the commitment of my leadership, a group of talented people, and a plan and resources to grow the company. We had energy and we had a great process and tools to successful. What could go wrong?

Innovation is difficult to harness for organizations of all sizes (Government and private sector alike). Replicating a process to encourage and produce innovation is even more challenging. Innovating in a structured space and time seems counter-intuitive, and begs the question: can thinking outside the box be a structured activity? Arc Aspicio recently held an Innovation Day to answer this question.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), created in 2003, undertook the most significant reorganization of federal agencies since the Cold War. It brought together federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies with a focus on securing the U.S. from threats in a collaborative way. DHS pulls together five complex mission areas: preventing terrorism and enhancing security; managing our borders; administering immigration laws; securing cyberspace; and ensuring disaster resilience.

Towards Preparedness and an Emergency Management Workforce of the Future

Towards Preparedness and an Emergency Management Workforce of the Future

Grit and determination. This is what the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) workforce is known for. After what is arguably the most challenging year in its history, the FEMA leadership called on the agency to enable the workforce through four elements: build, empower, sustain, and train. A key factor in creating a scalable, sustainable disaster response workforce is to foster a proactive culture, one focused on preparedness. A proactive mindset can create an environment that asks the “what if” questions that lead to more prepared response efforts.
