Helios HR Apollo Awards Names Arc Aspicio a Finalist in Four Categories

Arlington, VA, February 29, 2016 — Helios selected Arc Aspicio as one of the 2016 Apollo Awards finalists in four categories. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Helios Apollo Awards recognizes organizations in Greater Washington for outstanding talent development.

Arc Aspicio is a finalist in four categories: Career Development, Culture, Leadership Development, and Recognition. Arc Aspicio competed in these categories against both large and small businesses. 

"We are very grateful to be a finalist in four categories in the 10th year of this prestigious award program," said Jackie Apple Meredith, Arc Aspicio's Manager of Talent. "Our four nominations recognize and help us celebrate our company's unique talent culture that focuses on discovering and developing employees with potential, and creating future leaders." 

The Apollo Award judges received more than 250 nominations in 2016, making the 2016 program the most competitive to date in its ten-year history. The independent judges included human resources experts such as Chief Human Resource Officers and former Apollo Award Winners.   

Arc Aspicio’s strategy includes ‘Discover Talent, Celebrate our Unique Culture’ as one of the company’s top five priorities. The company continues to invest heavily in our talent programs, differentiating the company from competition in a challenging market.

Significant learning and rapid promotions with tremendous support from team members are a hallmark of Arc Aspicio's culture. Employees have opportunities to demonstrate leadership at any level. Junior employees receive mentoring and training to develop leadership skills. In Arc Aspicio's recruiting process, the company actively seeks people with a strong interest in professional development.

 Arc Aspicio's outstanding reputation for attracting and developing people with high potential stems largely from the strong partnership between Jackie, CEO Lynn Ann Casey, and company and project supervisors. This partnership fosters an environment where company leaders take a personal interest in Arc Aspicio employees and work to identify candidates and employees with high leadership potential.

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?

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.
