We take pride as one of the only 500 contractors that are 100% employee-owned serving the federal government. With our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), we offer our employees tangible benefit of ownership. As employees grow with us, they are granted company stock and vest in their shares without any employee contribution required. This provides an incredible opportunity for our team to build their retirement savings and create wealth. Our vision is to reward our employees who help build the company by providing economic equity in the business.

According to NCEO, employees of ESOP-owned companies make 5 to 12% more in wages and have almost three times the retirement assets of workers in similar non-ESOP companies.


HighlightCares is our corporate community service program aimed at making a powerful impact on local DC-Metro area and communities nationwide. Every quarter, we organize an initiative that supports a different cause and organization, allowing our employees to participate in person or virtually. Since its inception, HighlightCares has supported over a dozen non-profit organizations, raised over $100,000 in lifetime donations, and donated more than 500 hours of employee time to various initiatives.
