Science Applications International Corp.’s (NYSE: SAIC) Chief Human
Resources Officer Karen
Wheeler received the Human Resources Impact Award by Washington
Business Journal and will be honored at the publication’s annual Best
Places to Work awards event on May 16.
The HR Impact Award is presented to the Washington, D.C.-area’s top HR
leaders who have made a direct and tangible impact on their company’s
workplaces and employees in 2018. Wheeler is one of three honorees
selected by a panel including Washington Business Journal staff.
“Congratulations to Karen on this impressive recognition, and I cannot
think of anyone more deserving. During her 23-year career with SAIC,
Karen has consistently demonstrated her visionary leadership and
business acumen in various key roles,” said SAIC CEO Tony
Moraco. “Under her guidance, we have increased value to our
workforce and business organizations, and delivered tangible results to
drive growth. Karen continues to transform human resources so that SAIC
is the career destination for the best talent.”
During her tenure with SAIC, Wheeler has driven significant positive
change by leading the company’s HR integration efforts following the
acquisition of Engility; improving and streamlining the employee
experience; advocating for enhanced benefits; and revamping the talent
recruitment, retention, and redeployment processes.
Under Wheeler’s leadership, SAIC created an inclusion and diversity
network of Business Resource Groups (BRGs) that provide opportunities
for networking, mentoring, leadership development, and knowledge
sharing. Although each BRG has a specific focus, all employees are
invited to participate.
Wheeler’s work extends beyond SAIC. She serves the City of Fairfax as a
Planning Commissioner and as a representative to the Parks and
Recreation Advisory Board. She also volunteered at Food for Thought, an
organization that works with Elementary Schools to provide food for
disadvantaged families. She is SAIC’s executive sponsor for USO-Metro
and serves as an Executive Board member with a concentration in HR and
procurement areas for the organization.
