Empower Diverse Talent
We believe that a more secure nation is one where our progress is fueled by diverse perspectives and a shared purpose to do world-changing work. We build and empower a diverse workforce that respects and champions inclusive thought, experiences, and backgrounds. We are committed to intentionally supporting diverse talent both internally and externally—the latter through initiatives with suppliers and community organizations.
We strive to lead our industry in creating an exceptional employee experience and have been recognized by and received awards from numerous industry organizations for our science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) talent programs; diversity, equity, and inclusion programs; and mental health excellence.

While certain mission requirements, such as those associated with government classified work, required a portion of our people to work at Booz Allen and government facilities throughout the pandemic, most were working under a "telework first" posture. As we closed FY22, we moved to a posture of managed flexibility.
We consider client and contract requirements, business needs, and employee preferences with managed flexibility as our guiding principle. We are committed to balancing what individual people and teams need to be productive and happy, the nature of our clients' missions, and what our business needs to grow. We will do this through our relationships with our clients, through our operational models, and by holding leaders accountable to be good role models and giving them the resources to help them do just that. Our emphasis on flexibility drives us to maximize our spaces, make in-person time matter, be virtual when it makes sense, and bring our clients along with us. We will adapt our managed flexibility approach, as needed, to increase agility, refresh our employee value proposition for recruiting and retention, extend our competitive advantage, and grow the business by maximizing access to talent in more geographies.
Principles of Managed Flexibility:
- Connect with our clients how, when, and where they need to be supported
- Create managed flexibility for employees whenever and however we can
- Collaborate in a reimagined workplace that includes expanded hoteling and more flexible and fluid community spaces
