Technical Experience Groups
To support our VoLT growth strategy and the highly skilled workforce crucial to its success, we launched eight Technical Experience Groups (TXGs) designed to help attract, engage, and retain our technically focused employees. Each TXG supports four strategic pillars: development, opportunity, connections, and thought leadership. They are open to all Booz Allen employees—from interested to expert. By taking part in the groups, employees build technical and business acumen, unlock career opportunities, connect with mentoring programs, and access and create technical thought leadership.
Each TXG has several executive-level sponsors as well as leads at all levels. The executive sponsors also serve on our Executive Tech Talent Council, led by our chief technology officer, to advance the overall program and ensure the groups support our business strategy and employee value proposition.
More than 46% of Booz Allen employees belong to a TXG. More than just networks, they are the nexus for training, badges, conferences, and other talent development offerings in their focus area. They also provide an avenue for employees to bring ideas forward and to respond to demand signals within the community. For example, our generative AI network formed in the wake of the introduction of new tech like ChatGPT and quickly became a forum for tech exchange, learning events, and meetups.
As Booz Allen continues to hire record numbers of technical talent, our TXGs play a unique role in onboarding that talent. Certain job profiles uniquely align with TXG topics, and we automatically enroll new hires with those profiles into the corresponding TXG(s), jumpstarting their development by connecting them with learning resources and a like-minded network.
In FY23, Booz Allen held the X Summit, our first-ever firmwide convening of TXGs. Drawing more than 4,300 attendees, the event featured a week of speakers, workshops, meetups, and technical training. During the summit, 264 employees completed a technical training or workshop.
Looking to the future, we expect our TXGs will differentiate Booz Allen from other employers while equipping our people with top qualifications, credentials, and leading-edge insights.
