XLA’s Coronavirus Response

March 27 – As we continue to navigate through this global health crisis and learn how to operate in what will be our new normal for the time being, XLA continues to be responsive and proactive to try to maintain business as usual. Although the situation with the COVID 19 virus is fluid and rapidly progressing, we as an organization, have taken measures for safety and work continuity. These include:


  • XLA Corporate has moved to telework to adhere to social distancing and help to stop the spread of germs.  Onsite visits that are absolutely essential to business continuity are pre-planned and spaced 6’ apart with no more than 10 individuals.

  • We still continue to interview candidates for all of our open positions, but have moved to virtual/online interviewing to ensure the health and safety of our staff and prospective employees.

  • Utilizing technology – XLA has moved to a virtual new hire orientation and on-boarding process to ensure a seamless and safety-first approach to hiring.

  • We maintain daily and weekly check-ins with our remote workforce through email, phone calls, texts, video chats, and group teleconferencing.




XLA Recognized in USA Today as a Top 25 Company for Women & Diversity

We are pleased to announce XLA has been selected by Comparably (a compensation, culture and career social media monitoring website) for 2017 both as one of the Top 25 Places in the U.S. for Women to Work AND a Top 25 U.S. Company for Diversity!


Feedback for Comparably’s “Best Of” lists are derived directly from sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rated their employers on compensation, being challenged at work, getting valuable feedback, diversity and inclusion, and other relevant workplace items.


XLA is thrilled to be recognized amongst some very well-known national and local Washington DC based companies such as Amazon, Nike, and NetCentrics Corporation.  We consider this recognition a testament to our continued dedication to our employees and overall workforce structure, with core values of respect, inclusion, and a positive place to work fostered by our leadership team.
