AMERICAN SYSTEMS, a leading provider of federal IT and engineering solutions, today announced it has been named a winner of the Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) 2013 CARE (Companies As Responsive Employers) Award. The award recognizes companies that offer innovative, supportive and family-friendly policies. This marks the third consecutive year AMERICAN SYSTEMS is recognized with the honor.
"The hard work and dedication of AMERICAN SYSTEMS' employees allows us to constantly exceed our customers' expectations as a company. Understanding the critical role our employees play, we place a premium on creating an outstanding work environment and offering unique benefits as an ESOP company," said Bill Hoover, President and CEO at AMERICAN SYSTEMS. "We're honored to receive the CARE award for the third consecutive year."
AMERICAN SYSTEMS offers unique benefits for its employees, as a majority-owned Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP) company. As an ESOP company, employees' exceptional performance is rewarded through a personal stake in organizational success. The company also emphasizes supporting the needs of working families and the achievement of work/life balance.
CARE Award recipients are selected by NVFS for exceptional policies and benefits, and company culture and philosophy. Members of the CARE Nominating Committee visit each finalist to tour the company and interview employees who represent a range from entry-level workers to senior management. Winners of the 21st annual CARE Awards will be recognized on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Waterford at Fair Oaks in Fairfax, Va.
