As part of our benefits package, JBS provides partial tuition reimbursement and pays for professional memberships. In addition, we offer a variety of opportunities for employees to learn and grow:
· Professional seminars—Nationally known thought leaders share their expertise during in-house seminars on topics ranging from health IT issues to the latest trends in social marketing.
· Technical training—Offered as needed in-house on a variety of topics. Most recently, employees from throughout the company were trained on SharePoint 2010.
· Brown-bag luncheons—Brief presentations featuring peer-to-peer sharing of new initiatives, innovations, and tools.
Our most current staff development initiative is Emerging Leaders, a program designed to identify, nurture, and train the next generation of potential leaders at JBS. Participants are nominated by peers and colleagues, with final selection made by JBS officers. Emerging leaders spend a year developing their potential through interactive learning activities and in-house seminars on our business and company, as well as receive coaching and mentoring by senior managers.
