Why People Love to Work Here: “A culture of caring. Our team enjoys coming to work because they feel related to their teammates, set each other up for success and are empowered to do the right thing for their customer. At the end of the day we live by the Golden Rule: ‘Treat Others How You Want To Be Treated,’ and do your part to make a positive influence in someone’s life today!”

Fun Things: “The JH Specialty Olympics, a company-wide scavenger hunt, new team member welcome parties, Christmas decorating challenge, a team-based Chopped cooking challenge with bacon, company/customer corn hole tournament, annual off-site Christmas parties complete with live entertainment, as well as numerous community volunteer activities, impromptu happy hours and poker/game/movie nights in the JH Specialty game room.”

Recent Culture Initiatives: “We realized that our IRA retirement plan was not being utilized as much as it could. To improve this, we made the determination to move to a more attractive 401k plan with a fully guaranteed 3% company contribution, regardless of whether or not the individual contributes his/her own dollars to the plan. Participation in team member contributions is now 97%.” – Jason Knothe, COO
