Our Culture of Integrity
As a small company in a competitive industry, a focus on ethics is a necessity for success. Clients need to trust that we will deliver, comply with the contract, and never compromise in our day-to-day delivery on projects.
Our company’s culture of integrity is critical to our reputation as a trusted homeland security company. Since our founding in 2004, our Ethics Program has been at the core of our corporate values and we reinforce it as a key element of our culture. We attract, select, and retain employees who share our commitment to ethics. We also carefully seek out clients and partners that are committed to ethical business practices.
Recently, I took over our mature Ethics Program which includes our Code of Conduct and outlines standards for ethical behavior that exceeds industry standards. I educate our people on ethics and compliance issues and on our Code of Conduct throughout the year. Our supervisors and mentors receive advanced ethics training, allowing them to help our people address any ethics that may arise in their day-to-day work with the Government. Our executives engage in frequent conversations about ethics with our people to increase company awareness. They also model our values, including integrity and trust, and create and promote an ethical work environment for our people.
I recently wrote a blog on how our people and their commitment to ethics make Arc Aspicio a great place to work (one of my favorite topics!). As our company grows, our people continue to amaze me in how they go above and beyond to delight our clients, to grow and mentor our people, and to make an incredible impact on the company in many ways - strategic planning, recruiting our team of future leaders, ethics, and new business. Each of them looks for ways to leave a lasting mark on the company.
Our people live our culture and commitment to ethics every day and because of them, we achieve things that large companies cannot imagine!
