FALLS CHURCH, Va., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Star Software, providers of IT support services to the United States Intelligence Community (IC), announced that the company has achieved 93% employee retention over the seven years since the company was founded.
"Our employees are the cornerstone of the business. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality service to our clients, and it would be impossible to do that without the extremely high caliber of employee we have been able to recruit and retain," said Dan Sherwell, president of Blue Star Software. "We are so proud that our team has such longevity with us, especially in an industry that is known for turnover."
"The freedom and flexibility to pursue the latest technology has been really exciting for me," said Lorraine Pace, one of the senior employees at Blue Star. "Dan has had a very big focus on Big Data and we are getting the chance to take the latest technology and innovation and apply those directly to projects we are currently working on. The benefits at Blue Star are really good and the training benefits are also great. In our industry we have a lot of choice in where we work but you know you've found the right place when you kind of find a place that feels more like home."
"Dan routinely pings me to see if I want to go through more training and enhance my skills," added Eileen Thompson, a senior systems engineer/architect with Blue Star. "He is always encouraging us to improve our skills, encouraging us to get certified and pushing us to explore our passions. That's something I really appreciate."
"We are excited about 2014," stated Sherwell. "Big data is continuing its dominance, and the deep expertise we have developed there is much in demand. Building out our capabilities in the mobile arena has been important as well, and we expect it to pay off nicely in the coming years. We're looking forward to another wonderful year with our team – and to hiring more people who can bring the same dedication and expertise to support our clients."
