U.S. Chamber of Commerce Honors Arc Aspicio for Fourth Year in a Row
Arlington, VA, March 09, 2010 – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recognized Arc Aspicio for the fourth year in a row with the Small Business Blue Ribbon Award. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
“The Blue Ribbon Small Business award is about more than recognizing financially successful businesses. It’s about honoring those that show a commitment to their employees, sound business practices, and bettering their communities,” said Thomas J. Donohue, U.S. Chamber president and CEO. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce received a record number of nominations this year.
The award recognizes businesses that demonstrate excellence across a broad spectrum of criteria including financial performance and business history, staff training and motivation, community involvement, customer service, and business planning.
Over the past four years, the company has grown as a direct result of continued dedication to the homeland security community and an innovative talent strategy. Last year, the company’s largest investment was in on training and coaching, with a special focus on leadership development.
“This award means a lot to Arc Aspicio because it reflects our commitment to homeland security. Our employees share a passion for making a difference for their clients and in the community. They deserve the credit and recognition of this award.”
—Rob O’Keefe, Chief Technology Officer
In addition to its work with the Department of Homeland Security, Arc Aspicio serves the homeland security community in many ways. Company employees support the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation through awareness campaigns and fundraising. The company allows employees additional paid time off to support non-profit activities and offers a re-imbursement bonus for employees to research emergency preparedness and purchase related supplies. The company also publishes a weekly newsletter read by thousands of people committed to the homeland security mission.
The company has also recently been recognized as one of Virginia’s Fantastic 50 and as an Emerging Star by the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce.
