Akima’s Unique Culture & Mission

Hear from some of Akima’s very own veteran employees on their experience transitioning from active duty to a career with Akima.

SkillBridge participants have the unique opportunity to work within and learn more about Akima’s culture and mission. With more than 9,500 employees, Akima employees work to deliver services and solutions to a wide variety of government customers. Our portfolio of companies comprises over 40 operating companies with capabilities including facilities, IT, logistics, protective services, systems engineering, mission support, construction, and equipment.

Akima works not only to help our customers’ missions succeed, but to create a long-lived asset for our Iñupiat shareholders – as a subsidiary of NANA Regional Corporation, Akima is owned by more than 15,000 Iñupiat shareholders. Our shareholders hail from the NANA region in Alaska — a 23+ million-acre area in the northwest corner of the state that comprises 11 villages and has been home to the Iñupiat for more than 10,000 years. Profits from Akima are returned to NANA Regional Corporation and used to support and sustain the people of the NANA region through education, direct assistance, community development, cultural programs, and much more.

Our employees are dedicated to the larger missions that Akima supports: the Inupiat shareholders, our government customers, and the communities within which we live and work.

What is the SkillBridge Program?

The Department of Defense SkillBridge Program is open to military members in their last 180 days of service, as well as to spouses of active duty members. The program enables these service members to transition to civilian life by working with companies such as Akima to gain real-world work experience through training, apprenticeships, and internships.
