There is no need to explain the fast paced world we live in. You begin each morning with a cup of coffee and quickly respond to dozens of emails before heading to the first of many meetings with colleagues you see every day around the office. However, did you ever wonder what story the person sitting next to you has to tell? Have you asked the person in the break room where they come from? Last week, we did just that.
In honor of Immigrant Heritage Month, JNR employees took time to celebrate the individual differences that make each one of us distinctly unique. It was quickly realized that our company not only travels the world but has a global reach within headquarter walls. Sweden, Colombia, England, Mexico, Korea, Greece, Serbia, El Salvador and Lebanon were only a few of the 44 countries represented. We also discovered that between our employees there are 11 languages fluently spoken such as Greek, Mandarin, and Tagalog. While one employee was able to trace her family lineage back to the Mayflower others had tremendous stories of struggle and determination of immigrating to the United States in search of a better life.
We must never forget what America stands for and that we are, in fact, a nation of immigrants. Each one of us brings some piece of their heritage and culture with them and we see that in the diverse approach to our work. At JNR we value the diversity that each one of us comes with and brings with us every day.
Please enjoy our video in support of Immigrant Heritage Month #IHM2016 and the #IAmAnImmigrant campaigns. We are immensely proud of our rich company culture and put these differences at the forefront of JNR’s success. Although none of us are the same, #WeAreOne.”
