ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has received a 2007 CARE (Companies As Responsive Employers) Award from the Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS). NVFS is an organization that promotes the idea that families are the foundation of a strong society and works to advance community cooperation and support in responding to family needs. CACI was recognized for its strong commitment to employee work-life quality, which includes tuition reimbursement and training opportunities, extensive support for new hires, and an adoption assistance plan.
CACI is a leading professional services and information technology company that provides solutions for defense, intelligence, homeland security, and the modernization of government services. It employs more than 11,400 people across some 120 locations in the United States and Europe . The company was honored for its employee-related programs and a company philosophy and culture that creates a fulfilling work environment which is responsive to employee needs.
Since its founding in 1962, the company has also been committed to a wide array of philanthropic activities. These include the preservation of America's national treasures, supporting organizations that help the nation's Armed Forces veterans, and assisting communities through donations of funds, time, and expertise to aid schools, students, and charitable organizations.
The CARE initiative was created in 1992 to reflect NVFS's belief that businesses play a key role in strengthening families and communities through the adoption of family-supportive workplace policies. NVFS enlisted the support of the business community, and the CARE Awards were developed as a mechanism for effecting a positive work-life balance in the workplace. Each year the awards are presented to employers in Northern Virginia that provide exceptionally family-friendly workplace policies and benefits for their employees.
According to Bill Fairl, CACI's President of U.S. Operations, "We're very pleased that the Northern Virginia Family Service has honored CACI by selecting our company for a CARE award. This recognition is a tribute to the high value we place on our employees and the CACI Culture that has helped guide our company for 46 years."
CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni said, "This award from the Northern Virginia Family Service clearly demonstrates that while our ways of doing business continually evolve to meet new market needs, the beliefs that emphasize a good balance between work and family life remain constant.
