1901 Group has participated in the "Virginia Tech (VT) Industrial Systems Engineering (ISE) D.C. Area Company Tour" to fill the tech talent pipeline and bridge the gap between Northern Virginia and Southwest Virginia, the company reported on Thursday.
"1901 Group has created a collaborative culture and a workforce that centers around leveraging talent through extensive training, education, and growth opportunities," said Sheri Neely, vice president of Operational Performance at 1901 Group.
The tour was held on January 17th, 2020 and led by the Virginia Tech (VT) ISE Emerging Leaders Board (ELB) and the VT Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE), to expose current students to various companies in the D.C. and Northern Virginia where ISE alumni currently work.
1901 Group, at the company’s Reston, VA office, presented current GovCon market trends, including the government's use of emerging technologies, and explained 1901 Group's technology solutions, partnerships and FedRAMP authorized platform.
The company outlined the current tactics that 1901 Group and the federal government have implemented in the efforts to achieve digital transformation. In addition, 1901 Group held a company panel to discuss employee work-life, the company’s culture, career paths and expectations within the public sector market.
"For employers in the D.C. and Northern Virginia region, recruiting top engineering talent is becoming critically important to provide the next generation of professionals with expertise in cloud, cyber security and AI…We see it as a no-brainer to make these challenges easier for both companies and students by bringing them together in person, on site, at the companies' facilities," said VT ISE ELB initiative lead, Maggie Dozier.
