What Makes Arc Aspicio a Great Place to Work?
We continue to be recognized as one of the best employers in the Washington, DC area several years in a row! We were recently named as one of the 2013 Best Places to Work in Virginia by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group. We were also recognized by Inc. Magazine as a 2011 Top Small Company Workplaces award winner.
So what makes Arc Aspicio a great place to work? I’d say that it is a few key things:
- Our people
- Our passion for the homeland security mission
- Our culture and values, especially integrity
Our people play a critical role in our excellent client delivery, our growth, and our culture. They model Arc Aspicio values, especially honesty and integrity, and help build a sense of community within the company. They engage with the company to make a meaningful impact. They help in many ways – strategic planning, recruiting our team of future leaders, mentoring, and new business. Because of their incredible contributions, Arc Aspicio achieves things that large companies cannot imagine.
To maintain our culture and values, all employees play an active role in recruiting, mentoring, and growing our talent. They also help select the new opportunities we pursue. We must constantly innovate in how we continue to create our culture and keep our employees informed, connected, and engaged, and most importantly, in how we show them our appreciation. Our people stay connected and involved through collaboration tools such as SharePoint, Socialcast, and instant messaging. We host All Hands meetings monthly via conference call and in person three times a year. These meetings highlight company activities, strategic initiatives, ethics and compliance training, client projects and best practices, topics to support training, and employee recognition and awards.
We also host community involvement activities and networking events for our employees throughout the year. Community involvement is a big part of our culture – you have probably noticed our passion for the Search Dog Foundation!
Our focus on and passion for the homeland security mission makes us unique in the market. Our dynamic and challenging consulting environment offers opportunity for professional growth and learning. Our employees learn new skills related to the mission every day. They have an opportunity to be leaders at all levels on their projects and for the company. They are truly passionate about homeland security, and make a remarkable impact and create value for their clients.
