Employee Demographics and Statistics
Employee Demographics and Statistics
Analyzing demographic data helps Leidos develop practices to better serve our employees.
People are the foundation of everything that we do. It is our responsibility to provide opportunities for them and give them paths to grow and develop – this will help us retain our best talent. Fostering a diverse team is also critical in order to provide the best possible results for our customers.
Leidos is a global company with 18,000 employees worldwide (as of the end of December 2015). Of that population, over 17,000 are in the U.S., representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and territories. The largest concentration of our employees is in the National Capital Region, with about 6,000 employees in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area.
Our total number of employees declined slightly in 2015, although some regions saw significant growth, most notably the United Kingdom, where we have added more than 200 employees to support the UK Ministry of Defense's Logistics Commodities and Services Transformation program.
Since this map does not display Washington, D.C. or U.S. territories, 215 employees working in Washington, D.C. are mapped to Virginia, and employees working in U.S. territories appear in the International Map below.
We also have employees in more than 20 countries around the world, with the majority of international employees located in the United Kingdom.

Initiatives to positively impact our diversity, such as affinity groups like our ERGs and recruiting and development efforts that focus on minorities are ongoing. See Diversity and Inclusion for more information on these and other programs.
