The JBS Storykeepers Project
As part of the company’s 25th anniversary in 2010, we asked employees to tell their stories about experiences they have had while working at JBS. We called it the JBS StoryKeepers Project and had employees vote for their favorites. Here are the two winning stories:
Read a Book… It Will Change Your Life is an employee’s experiences working with USAID on a project to provide books to disadvantaged schools in Latin America and the Caribbean. Click here to read.
How Teamwork Brought One Youth the Support She Needed is an employee’s experience working with JBS to help a homeless teen. Click here to read.

In the Community
JBS has a longstanding commitment to being a good citizen in the communities in which our offices are based. Our employees also find fulfillment in pursuing a variety of volunteer activities.
In 2005, JBS acquired Aguirre International and the Aguirre Group, LLC. Founded by Dr. Edward Aguirre, Commissioner of Education under President Ford, the Aguirre companies allowed us to provide our clients with an even broader range of expertise and experience and added new agencies to our client base. New clients included the U.S. Agency for International Development, U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Department of Education, and the Corporation for National and Community Service.
In 2008, JBS acquired the Stellar Corporation of Vienna, VA. Stellar, founded in 1994, is a health information technology firm. Now part of JBS's IT Services group, the Stellar team provides services to Federal clients as well as biotech and pharmaceutical firms. Stellar’s work with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and commercial clients includes development and harmonization of health data standards and support for initiatives to streamline reporting, analyzing, and communicating of adverse events related to clinical research and post-market safety surveillance.

“We started JBS because we wanted to build a firm that reflected our personal commitment to doing work that supports systemic change and helps improve people’s lives. And we wanted to create a strengths-based corporate culture that holds each individual in high regard, values each person’s contribution, and emphasizes collaboration, teamwork, and relationship building, both internally and with our clients. Our proudest accomplishment? We are achieving what we set out to do.” Gail Bassin and Jerri Shaw, Co-CEOs
