It is very important that when a team member comes on board at Jones, they have the opportunity to participate in the various professional development resources. To foster this development, our teams have founded several continuing education programs exclusively for Jones employees. At Jones, we are not about creating experiences that last only a brief moment in time. Rather, we offer opportunities to generate capacity and change behaviors.
The Jones Leadership Academy™ is an eight-month program where employees learn team building and business education. Participants discover the importance of feedback, crucial conversations, “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”, and “The Oz Principle”.
The Jones Leadership Academy is exclusive to Jones and is tailored uniquely to our organization. Led by HDI Consulting, it focuses on developing skills and practices that will help foster success throughout each participant’s career, family life and in the communities they serve.
Within the Jones Leadership Academy individuals will gain the following:
Leadership skills, dialogue skills, and emotional intelligence.
Education on various Jones business units, processes, strategy, roles and functions.
Building teams, team dynamics, and cross-functional teams.
Planning, scheduling, case studies and real-work assignments, and/or strategic project development.
Lunch and Learns provide onsite training taught by members of the Jones community. Participants build professional skills, learn about industry specific topics, and familiarize themselves with Jones Companies products and services.
The Jones Book Club™ is an opportunity where employees engage in weekly discussions with leadership on business books such as “Good to Great”, “The One Minute Manager”, and “Great by Choice”. Books on personal finance and successful behavior traits will also make their way to the Jones Book Shelf.
Throughout the year, we host picnics and other gatherings for all of our employees and their families to come together as one team. We recognize and appreciate the hard work each of our team members puts in to keep our business thriving, and we value their families as our own. Moreover, we view each individual’s children and grandchildren as the next generation of the Jones Companies who will be a big part of our long term sustainability.get to know us
