Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, engineering, and management services, is pleased to announce its selection as one of 32 recipients of the inaugural 2022 Top Virginia Employers for Interns Awards. The award was presented by the Virginia Talent + Opportunity Partnership (V-TOP), in collaboration with the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV), and the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
From the V-TOP news release on July 28, 2022, “Internships enrich the education experience for students and consequently reinforce Virginia as the top state for education, talent and business,” said Barry DuVal, president and CEO of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. “The 32 recipients represent a distinguished group of employers that help to cultivate talent here in Virginia for the betterment of its students, regions and the commonwealth as a whole.”
Serco was recognized for its formal three-tiered approach to learning and professional growth, known as “Learn,” “Lead,” “Grow.” Each summer a student interns with Serco, they join a different tier of learning, moving through unique training and experiences to foster skillsets. Serco’s internship program also features an Intern Executive Challenge project designed to provide interns the opportunity to work together in small teams to solve high-visibility challenges formulated by Serco’s Executive Management Team.
“I am very proud of our internship program at Serco – it’s a powerful opportunity for students to gain great experience, and for us to introduce new perspectives to the organization,” said Julie Van Leunen, Serco’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “We continued our program through the pandemic, and we learned a lot. Serco is a place where interns learn through meaningful work and develop personally and professionally. This V-TOP recognition highlights the impact of our program and the excellent work from the Serco team.”
