Community Beyond 9-5

Community, both within Axient and in the locations where our employees live, work, and play, is the foundation of our corporate culture. In and outside of the workplace, we recognize our people and our community are the keys to our success. Axient carries forward a steadfast commitment to be active participants and stewards of the communities, causes and passions of our localities.


Employee Spotlight: Mike Plantenga

In April, Axient’s Executive Director and Program Manager for Space Systems Command (SSC)/Development Corp contract, Mike Plantenga, was awarded the AFCEA Medal of Merit. This award acknowledges a sustained level of dedicated service to AFCEA, combined with professional excellence at a mid to senior level in the fields of communications, electronics, intelligence and information systems.

Teamwork In & Out of the Office

With our Axcelerators in Action volunteering program, we have coordinators in different locations across the US and have monthly volunteer events. Spending time giving back creates such a meaningful experience for our employees and makes an impact on the communities in which they work. It really helps build team culture as well and enables better collaboration. We are so proud of how much our employees work together and give back so generously.

Protecting Our Community

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our employees took the opportunity to produce 3D-printed personal protective equipment (PPE) to assist with the shortage in Northern Alabama. In total, the team created ~300 face shields and ~450 masks.

Code of Ethics

Ensuring honor and integrity in everything we do.

Axient is an equal opportunity employer in all aspects of employment and does not tolerate any illegal discrimination or harassment of any kind. We take pride in cultivating a culture that celebrates diversity, champions positive change, and supports our people in and out of the workplace.

Safety & Support

Axient provides a clean, safe, and healthy work environment. Each employee has responsibility for maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and reporting accidents, injuries and unsafe conditions, procedures, or behaviors. Violence and threatening behavior are not permitted. Employees must report to work in a condition to perform their duties, free from the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol.

Employees should speak, without fear of retribution or consequence, with anyone in their management chain when they have a question about the application of the Code of Conduct or when in doubt about how to properly act in a particular situation. Employees who violate the Code of Conduct will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including discharge.

Lawful Conduct

At Axient, we expect full compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations at all times.

Employees may not accept nor offer bribe anyone for any reason, whether in dealings with governments or the private sector. The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and similar laws in other countries, prohibit offering or giving anything of value, directly or indirectly, to government officials in order to obtain or retain business.

Financial books, records, accounts and financial statements must be maintained in appropriate detail, must properly reflect the Company’s transactions and must conform both to applicable law and to the Company’s system of internal controls.

Conflicts of Interest

In performing their duties, employees are expected to use their judgment to always act in the best interests of the Company and to not allow personal interests to interfere with the best interests of the Company. A conflict of interest may also arise from an employee’s business or personal relationship with a customer, supplier, competitor, business partner, or other employee, if that relationship impairs the employee’s objective judgment. Employees should attempt to avoid conflicts of interest and employees who believe a conflict of interest may exist should promptly notify the OCI Compliance Officer.
