  • A no-cost series of Soft Skills training courses directed solely at improving your workplace capabilities and professional interactions
  • Encouraging a healthy work/life balance
  • Flexible schedules (within the allowable restrictions of each contract)
  • Exciting work that engages your interest while expanding your skills
  • and that’s not the whole list – see the benefits section below for insurance / paid leave / retirement / etc.!

We’re a small business with the small business feel of community and personalized solutions AND big business clients and know-how. We’ve been in business for over 20 years, and have supported some of the same clients for all 20 of those years. We consistently win recompetes and have supported some projects through all option years of their original contracts and even follow-on contracts. We have excellent win rates and performance assessments.
