iDirect Government (iDirectGov), a leading provider of satellite communications to the military and government, today announced that for the third consecutive year, it was named the Washington Business Journal's (WBJ) Best Places to Work for the large company category. The WBJ acknowledges the top 100 Greater Washington, D.C. companies for their workplace excellence based on survey responses from their respective employees.
“What a tribute it is to our great team members that we are recognized for the third consecutive year as one of the best places to work in the greater Washington, D.C. area,” said John Ratigan, president of iDirect Government. “We pride ourselves on hiring smart people who bring their unique talents to the team to drive excellence in creating the utmost reliable SATCOM solutions for our military, homeland security, first responder and other government users.”
iDirectGov employees are all U.S. citizens, with a third being U.S. military veterans and more than 60% holding U.S. security clearances.
“Our employees are the hallmark of our operations and enjoy a healthy work-life balance,” Ratigan said. “Recently, thanks to obtaining and retaining the best employees, we delivered software with the most advanced security features available to the government SATCOM market, including information assurance (IA) and signal excision technology. It’s exciting endeavors such as this that our dedicated team members thrive on and make iDirectGov a great place to work.”
The honorees were announced at a virtual ceremony on May 20 and are listed on the Washington Business Journal Lists.
This award recognition adds to iDirect Government’s 2021 Innovation Award for Cyber Tech.
