Our Philosophy & Standards
Within the global missions we serve and geographies where we reside, comes great social responsibility to bridge the needs of local communities, customers and employees alike. As part of our moral framework, SOC seeks to promote our values of Safety, Diversity, Integrity and Success by advancing professionalism, respect for human rights, sustainability and greater efficiencies as we support national security and diplomatic efforts abroad.
We are a company united by our customer’s mission, with a commitment to leading the industry by setting the highest standards in ethics, safety and compliance.
At SOC, we are always looking to support our employees in their career development to enhance their expertise, diversification and leadership capabilities. Not only does this encourage our employees to advance to their highest potential, it supports our values of Safety, Diversity, Integrity and Success, helping SOC remain an agile and successful organization for our customers. As we work toward our goals of enrichment and customer focus, we provide the highest levels of training, working to improve industry standards in safety, diversity, ethics and compliance, technology, security, intelligence and mission support solutions. An example of our commitment to assist our employees is the Tuition Reimbursement Program available to provide tuition fees for approved coursework. In support of ethics and compliance, our focus is to provide employees with ongoing training and information to comply with Federal Acquisition Regulation [FAR] 52.203-13 (Contractor Code of Business Ethics and Conduct), export regulations, anti-corruption laws, and working within host country laws. This includes in-person training on our Code of Ethics and other issues specific to U.S. Government contracting, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Compliance, and Export Controls, and Procurement Integrity.
As a company that maintains International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Certification at specific sites (9001, 5000, 14001, 50000), we implement rigorous quality controls and provide ongoing professional training of personnel. In addition, we incorporate strict industry standards in compliance with Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001. Our unyielding commitment to maintaining a strong safety culture is continued through SOC’s Safety 24/7 Program and membership of the National Safety Council, an approach that aims to benefit employee safety in the workplace, on the road, and at home. Above all, we place safety and security first, in all aspects of our business.
