Celebrating the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!

Year after year, one scorching summer after another, the Fourth of July rolls around and the anticipation of the day’s festivities fill the neighborhood streets with excitement. It is, after all, the peak of the summer season. The once vividly colored beach towel is beginning to fade from long days left in the sun and you have mastered the art of grilling the perfect steak after several weekend barbecues of practice!

Undoubtedly, it is the most enjoyable summer celebration! Friends and family come together to enjoy food made with love,  share in laughter and most importantly to create memories that will be shared for years to come; hopefully, not at your expense!

However, not every American has the luxury of spending the holiday poolside or lighting up the night sky with a spectacular firework display. How easy it is to take for granted the brave men and women who choose to put their life on the line for our many freedoms, great and small. This holiday has been built upon tremendous sacrifice since 1776 when American independence was won and continues to be fought for every day. Always remember the strength and courage of our brothers and sisters who protect our country everyday so that we can enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

So, this Fourth of July as you celebrate this great land with friends and family, remember to take a moment and salute our country’s brave stars.

Have a wonderful and safe holiday!

#IAmAnImmigrant

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.”

Our dedication to thorough training is why our clients continuously trust us with their most valued assets- their customers.

Immigrant Heritage Month at JNR

 

#ImmigrantHeritageMonth   #IAmAnImmigrant   #IHM2016

June is Immigrant Heritage Month, and the #IAmAnImmigrant campaign has launched to encourage all of us to explore our individual heritage & recognize our distinct and shared experiences. We all have our place in the American story, whether as a new immigrant, native to this land, a descendent of slavery or those who came to our nation seeking a better life.

This campaign began three years ago to recognize that almost all of us come from families of immigrants and, in fact, America was founded on the strength and perseverance of immigrant communities.  Now, more than ever, it is important to demonstrate how America’s diversity, fueled by immigrants and Native Americans, makes us stronger and more connected as a nation.

Throughout this month, individuals will be exploring their lineage and celebrating both diversity and our shared American heritage by telling their distinct stories, which will comprise a uniquely American narrative. To learn more, visit these websites: Welcome.us and http://www.iamanimmigrant.com/.

At JNR, we understand that diversity encompasses many characteristics including age, gender, ethnicity, culture, education, personality, sexual orientation, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs and a multitude of other ideologies and attributes.

Embracing differences and realizing a diverse collection of skills and experiences creates a rich company culture, provides us all with opportunities to learn and provide services to clients on a global basis. The value we place on diversity and ensuring a welcoming and inclusive work environment can be seen by the way we interact with our clients, suppliers, each other and the communities in which we live and work.

We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a welcoming environment that is conducive to cultivating employee ideas. We have developed a diverse team and a culture of openness and honesty, in which we treat each other with the respect we all deserve.

We encourage diversity in the workplace and inspire all of our employees to express their ideas and opinions and perform to their highest ability, and we attribute a sense of equal value to all. We respect individual rights to self-identification, and we recognize that no one culture is intrinsically superior to another.

JNR’s core mission is to help our clients grow their businesses and we know that by employing a workforce as diverse as our client base we will be better positioned to continue developing solutions that meet our clients’ needs.

We take pride in supporting and protecting diversity because, by valuing individuals and groups free from prejudice, and by fostering a climate where equity and mutual respect are fundamental, we will help make our world a better place.
