Our strategy and technology consultants have empowered our international clients with the knowledge and experience they need to build their own local resources and capabilities.
Our clients call upon us to work on their hardest problems—delivering effective health care, protecting warfighters and their families, keeping our national infrastructure secure, bringing into focus the traditional boundaries between consumer products and manufacturing as those boundaries blur.
Booz Allen was founded on the notion that we could help companies succeed by bringing them expert, candid advice and an outside perspective on their business. The analysis and perspective generated by that talent can be found in the case studies and thought leadership produced by our people.
We've come a long way delivering innovative solutions. But our next chapter is still being written.
Our 22,600 engineers, scientists, software developers, technologists, and consultants live to solve problems that matter. We’re proud of the diversity throughout our organization, from our most junior ranks to our board of directors and leadership team.
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. Executive Vice President 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."
We asked a few past winners to share what their experiences were like.
Chief Technologist Mike Morgan, one of our FY15 Client Service winners, said "Winning the BEA definitely gives you greater exposure and visibility across the business, and new connections could lead to more work with other accounts, which is always a good thing."
Associate Katie Duthaler has been a devoted driver of the volunteer force supporting the ALS Association: "Winning in the Community Connections category helped our cause. It brought us more volunteers, reenergized our leaders, and reinvigorated the team to do even more great work for the ALSA."
Motivating the team is one clear benefit. Motivating the client is another. Sean McDonald, Principal, helped lead the Department of Labor team that won in the Client Service category. "Because the client was a big part of due diligence, he has the gala booklet right on his desk. He's so proud!"
The BEA program is just one way that Booz Allen creates a workplace where all employees can succeed and be recognized for their achievements.
