CHA Leadership Shares Positive Message for the Future at Town Hall Meeting

Cape Henry Associates owner and founder, Bill Allen, and the company’s executive staff hosted their semi-annual Town Hall meeting for 150 employees at the Town Center City Club in Virginia Beach May 3. The all-hands event featured a kick-off opening conversation with Mr. Allen, and included presentations by Chief Executive Officer Jon Drews, Chief Revenue Officer Chuck Wythe, and Chief Operating Officer John Jackson. Mr. Allen stressed, “The most important thing to me personally is that we provide all of you with a career, not a contract. We are absolutely committed to filling our pipeline with work to keep everyone employed for as long as they want to be here. I want folks to enjoy coming to work and we strive for a collegial and respectful atmosphere.” Three themes evolved throughout the event: “Pride” in where the company came from and what it is doing for our Armed Forces, “Success” in executing the Cape Henry Associates 2016 Strategic Plan, and “Opportunities” for the company looking forward.

The event was well-attended and well-received. “I walked out last night motivated and proud to be part of this team,” shared Danielle Holmes of Cape’s Business Development team. The sentiment resonated among many of the employees as the presentation finished with 10 employees receiving $500 “Bravo Zulu” awards for performance above and beyond expectations. “Bravo Zulu” is an at-sea Navy flag hoist by the Admiral in charge of a given operation indicating a job well done. It’s a fitting tradition carried on at Cape Henry Associates as the company is made up of 75 percent military veterans.

“Communication with the people doing the hard work and delivering quality products to those following in our footsteps defending our country is critical to our success,” shared Mr. Drews. “I want all of us to know what’s going on so that we can all carry the same message and swim in the same direction.” He continued, “We are going for ISO 2015 certification this fall, and I believe Cape Henry will be one of the very first companies in Hampton Roads to accomplish this intensive new standard. We can only achieve milestones like that if we’re all informed and empowered to do our jobs.”

Cape Henry Employee Joins US National Team for Second Year

Wood24Congratulations to Laurie Wood, a Cape Henry QA Analyst and a second-season member of the USA Women’s Sled Hockey Team! Sled hockey, an adaptive form of ice hockey, has been growing in popularity across the world since its creation in the 1960s. This year’s tryouts were the most competitive and largest in the team’s history after the team won Gold in last year’s inaugural International Paralympic Committee World Cup.

Laurie is no stranger to the ice, having played sled hockey for more than two years almost immediately after leaving the hospital. She is also a member of the USA Warriors, a team comprised of disabled veterans, and the Virginia Beach Hockey Club Sled Team. To prepare for national tryouts, Laurie built her endurance, strength, and balance by cross-training with kayaking/paracanoeing and weight-lifting, and practiced skills by shooting against the side of her house.

Laurie looks forward to being part of the national team for the second season because “wearing and representing the red, white, and blue again is an incredible feeling. It’s being a part of something bigger than yourself. It’s an opportunity to be a role model to other women and girls who have a disability and being able to show them that they can do this too.”

Cape Recognized By Virginia Governor

Governor McAuliffe Presents First V3 Veteran Employment Grant Awards

~Grant to foster the continued growth of the New Virginia Economy~

McAuliffe, Cape HenryRICHMOND Governor McAuliffe today honored the first recipients of the V3 Veteran Employment Grant at a special ceremony held at ICF International in Fairfax.

V3 Veteran Employment Grants are awarded to qualifying companies that take part in the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program of the Virginia Department of Veterans Services.  The V3 Program works to educate and train employers throughout the Commonwealth on the value veterans bring to Virginia’s workforce.  Through the V3 Program, employers develop strategies to recruit, hire, and retain veterans, maximizing the productivity of their workforce.  The 300+ V3 companies have pledged to hire over 12,000 veterans, with over 10,000 veterans already hired.

Speaking at today’s ceremony Governor McAuliffe said, “Capitalizing on the talent, motivation, leadership, and commitment that veterans bring to Virginia’s workforce is essential to building the new Virginia economy. The V3 Veteran Employment Grant is an innovative way to help more veterans transition into civilian life by connecting them with employers who will benefit from their unique skills and training.”

The first recipients of a V3 Veteran Employment Grant are ITA International and Cape Henry Associates.  “ITA International is a longtime member and supporter of the V3 Program, and has hired 82 Veterans since 2012.  Cape Henry Associates is a brand new V3-certified company which truly understands the value of veterans,” said Andrew Schwartz, V3 Program Manager.

Targeted at companies with 300 or fewer employees, the new V3 Veterans Employment Grant is designed to increase participation in the V3 Program and encourage the hiring of talented and dedicated veterans.  V3 employers may apply to the V3 Program for a $1,000 grant for veterans that have been hired and retained for one year, up to a maximum of $10,000 per company per year.  Veterans must have been out of the military for one year or less when hired, and must be paid at least the prevailing average wage for the locality in which they work.

The V3 Program has received national recognition as an innovative and highly successful approach to connect employers with transitioning veterans and for the Program’s emphasis that hiring a veteran is an investment with an outstanding return.

“DVS extends its appreciation to ITA International, Cape Henry Associates and all certified V3 Employers.  I join Governor McAuliffe in applauding their collective commitment to investing in Virginia’s workforce.  Hiring a veteran is a commitment that will have an immediate, impactful, positive return for these businesses,” stated John Newby, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Veterans Services.

The V3 Veterans Employment Grants are funded through a $500,000 appropriation approved by Governor McAuliffe and the 2015 General Assembly, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis until available funds are exhausted.

V3 Veterans Employment Grant applications must be submitted through the V3 Program website at www.dvsv3.com.
