Culture

We foster personal and professional growth, allowing PALS to thrive at JBREC and beyond. We strive to create a culture where all PALS feel understood, empowered, and valued.

Core Values

At JBREC, we make it a priority to attract and retain PALS: the most Passionate, Articulate, Likable, and Smart team members.

Our team delivers:

the most honest, valued, clear, and timely solutions in the industry

a dynamic culture that pays fairly, allows diverse individuals to grow while achieving their negotiated work / personal life balance, and provides the opportunity to work with PALS:

Passionate

Curious, energetic people who embrace our high standards for excellence, overcome obstacles, recruit and grow others, pursue innovation, thrive on continuous improvement, measure and improve results, and take pride in helping our clients succeed

Articulate

Empathetic listeners who base opinions on facts and communicate clearly, concisely, and compassionately

Likable

Self-aware, humble, and kind players who put the JBREC team’s success over individual success; they make work enjoyable because they hold themselves and others accountable for being reliable, trustworthy, inclusive, and respectful of others’ time

Smart

Insightful, observant, second-level thinkers who challenge prevailing beliefs, take pragmatic risks, and regularly convert complexity into precise, logical, forward-thinking recommendations and solutions

Our culture in action

We put a lot of time and effort into creating a great culture that works well for us. We have a Vice President of People Development and Culture who oversees our training and proprietary JBREC-U Certifications that help us work well together.

What does our team say about our company culture?

At a recent company strategy meeting, we asked all of our team members to write down several words to describe our company culture. This word cloud illustrates the results of that team exercise.

My role at JBREC challenges me on a daily basis. As a systemic thinker and perfectionist, the chaos that comes with planning events has helped me grow me into a more balanced individual.

Charity

The importance of giving back

JBREC recognizes the importance of giving back to the community. Rather than selecting all the charities, we believe in allowing each team member to decide which organizations they want to support and are passionate about.

We also encourage the team to participate in charitable activities to help the local community by providing paid time off for volunteering. Employees may use the matching and volunteer program to contribute their money, time, and talents to recognized charities, causes or not-for-profit organizations, making a positive difference in their communities and assisting those less fortunate.

Start Your Career at JBREC

We are always looking for great people to join our team and will accept resumes for consideration.
