Fair Chance Program. As JBM worked to hire engaged team members, we initiated the Fair Chance Program, which provides opportunities for individuals to learn transferrable and meaningful job skills. The program creates partnerships and business opportunities with the public and private sector, with the goal of expanding career and employment opportunities to more individuals and successfully reintegrating ex-offenders into society.
The Win-Win outcome of this program underscores Better World. The company is able to find qualified, engaged employees, and Fair Chance individuals are offered employment opportunities.
Garden Give Back. Visitors to JBM’s headquarters can’t help but notice two large garden beds right on the front lawn. Tended by team members, the garden hints at the breadth and depth of the community spirit that permeates the company. Harvested fruits and vegetables are sold to team members, and the money is donated to Interfaith. The goal is to provide fresh, healthy food to team members as part of JBM’s wellness program, while also supporting Interfaith’s mission.
