Frank and Company

Leidos is a global science and technology solutions and services leader working to solve the world’s toughest challenges in the defense, intelligence, homeland security, civil, and health markets. Their 32,000 global employees have an impact on the community that is just as meaningful and varied as the work that they do.

At their Reston headquarters and in Northern Virginia and the DC Metro area where around one-third of their employees call home, Leidos supports a number of inititiatives including STEM and veterans. In addition from the over 500 members of Team Leidos that participated in the DC Heart Walk, to the small but dedicated group that laid wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery in an ice storm in December, and from the dozens of volunteers that helped build a learning garden at Maury Elementary in Alexandria, to those who walk, run, ride, and raise money in events like Tour de Cure in Reston Town Center, Leidos and its employees dedicate their efforts, both on and off the clock, to making the world a better place.

In Orlando and Dayton, Team Leidos focuses largely on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education and Habitat for Humanity. In San Diego, employees devote hundreds of hours to the USO and to supporting the Navy and Marines in particular. Donations of money and time from UK colleagues often go to cancer-related charities.
