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.

Reinventing Strategy

Reinventing Strategy

Since the GPRA Modernization Act in 2010, agencies across the Federal Government have raced to establish new Strategic Plans in response to incoming Presidential Administrations and agency leaders. Developing a new Strategic Plan is incredibly exciting for an agency. Leaders can redefine priorities, frontline managers can improve mission performance, and employees can better engage with the mission. Strategy, however, is so much more than just a Strategic Plan.

Running IT Like a Business: How Technology Business Management is Shaping the Future of Federal Agencies

As the Government continually looks for ways to increase efficiency and encourage innovation, Information Technology (IT) is emerging as a solution to these needs. Recent Federal guidance mandates all agencies to adopt a new framework for better understanding IT costs. Technology Business Management (TBM) is a framework that incorporates IT departments into the overall business network, shifting away from treating IT as an independent unit. This provides a clear way to evaluate and manage IT, running IT as a business and communicating the value of new IT investments.

Behavioral Science – Using Behavioral Science to Effect Action

Behavioral Science – Using Behavioral Science to Effect Action

How do organizations encourage behavior change in their customers? Increasingly, they focus on customer experience, and as a consequence employ behavioral science methodologies. At the heart of behavioral science is the consideration of how an organization can make small investments that generate incremental savings/returns while considering both customers and organizational benefits. One example is Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Pre✓® and U.C. Customs and Border Protection’s Global Entry programs.

Captivate Your Audience Through Design+Data

So often, senior leaders must communicate their strategic and simple vision in a world of growing complexity. They must make decisions – and frequently explain them – based on an enterprise view of their data. It’s getting easier to do this these days through data visualizations and infographics that speak to specific employee and stakeholder audiences. Design+Data is what we call it at Arc Aspicio.

Chief Data Officers: Six Steps to Manage Data as an Enterprise Asset

With an exponential increase in the types and quantities of data, organizations need defined strategies and techniques to manage data as an enterprise asset.
