Dozens of sites across Afghanistan October 5 – November 9, 2012
7,000 interviews. 35 days. 1 mission.
It was an ambitious endeavor to say the least…
Mission Essential had just won a new contract. And while the opportunity was an exciting one, Mission Essential also knew that handled incorrectly, a transition like this could result in a disruption to the client’s mission.
So, working against a small 35-day window, our 50-person transition team hit the road, visiting all 7,000 personnel in remote locations throughout the warzone, giving them a thorough and respectful, face-to-face explanation of the situation.
The results were astounding: 99.7% of the employees stayed on board.
It’s a success story that, while impressive, is just one example of the type of effort Mission Essential puts forth to achieve successful outcomes. In fact, our lean organizational design allows us to be consistently agile – providing quick, superior execution to fulfill our client’s complex operational needs.
Change is inevitable. We are committed to finding solutions around the obstacles in our way – no matter the contract, no matter the location.
