When Booz Allen wanted to reimagine the way we recognize outstanding achievements of our employees, we applied our own innovative mindset toward establishing the Booz Allen Excellence Awards (BEA) program. Chief Technology Officer and BEA Chair Susan Penfield says, “The BEAs celebrate the vast amount of talent we have here at Booz Allen and the compelling work our employees do for our clients, our community, and within teams."
Each year’s nomination season always brings forth an exciting variety of candidates—competing across several categories of awards: Client Services, Connections, Innovation, and Functional Catalyst. "It's eye-opening for the committee," said Executive Vice President Jim Allen, a BEA Committee member. "The committee is made of up senior officers, and even we don't each know every awesome thing that is happening in Booz Allen. So just entering gains employee teams recognition and awareness across every sector of the firm."
