At J&M, we believe the one thing that sets us apart is our people. Creating a custom IT strategy is only a small piece of the pie that represents our success and reputation. Our team completes that pie by fulfilling J&M’s vision & values in everything that we do.
Each month, we take the necessary time to review how our team is tracking towards J&M’s goals while upholding the vision & values. Faith in the workplace is part of that discussion. Our J&M team members review a given sermon once a month, and relate it to the business. The focus is solely on important life lessons that can be used at a personal level or at the business level.
Now, faith is a topic that can sometimes cause an uproar or a sense of uneasiness within conversation. I, personally, have never been open about it but have always respected everyone’s beliefs. Whether I am involved in J&M’s conversations or not, I am always able to take something away that leaves me with something to work on personally. That’s what it is all about. At J&M, we don’t stop at creating better businesses. We create better people.
“You know, many people believe that faith in the workplace is a no-no,” Jen Dodge states. “We provide an optional, flexible, no pressure learning experience for our employees to share…no matter what their faith is. Today, one of our employees told us that she feels she’s stepped up her faith due to those sessions. Watching your employees grow is such a great feeling.”
Jen, Cheryl, Linda, and Natalie of the J&M team will be enjoying their “ladies night” one week from today, May 2nd, at the Elevation Outcry Tour at PPG Paints Arena in downtown Pittsburgh, PA. We invite you to join them in a celebration of faith including live music, readings, and more. For additional information on the event, including other cities and dates, visit their website. Join J&M in the discussion and help create a better you!
