Culture of Respect

The foundation of Jabil’s Respect. Recognize. Reward. program is built on a respectful work environment where everyone is empowered to contribute to the success of the company. The program’s goal is to discover, highlight and share employees’ superior performance and their commitment to helping others.

Employee recognition has always been an integral part of Jabil’s culture and, following our belief in empowerment, each site designed its local recognition program to fit its unique culture. When the Respect. Recognize. Reward. program was developed in 2010, it was critical that sites continue to run its local programs while at the same time, giving them the ability to submit exceptional employees for global recognition. This structure has resulted in hundreds of Jabil employees, from all departments, locations and functions, to be recognized and celebrated each quarter. Employees’ actions and results vary, but their contributions all support Jabil’s Guiding Principles.

Elliad Follows His Dreams

Elliad Granger

Business Unit Manager
St. Petersburg Corporate

A native of St. Petersburg, Florida, Elliad Granger’s fascination with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields started at a young age. This passion and excitement continued throughout high school and into his secondary education where he received his Computer Engineering degree at New York’s Columbia University and a Master’s in Business Administration from Liberty University in Virginia. “I’ve always tried to take advantage of every opportunity presented to me in pursuit of my ambitious goals,” said Elliad.

Today, as a Business Unit Manager in Jabil’s Consumer Lifestyle & Wearable Technology sector, Elliad manages the profit and loss (P&L) and a cross-functional global team for one of Jabil’s emerging global accounts. “The wearables market is set for tremendous growth,” said Elliad. “I’ve immersed myself in learning about these new capabilities and technologies to take great care of our customers and help bring their products to market.”

“The opportunities for advancement at Jabil encourage me everyday to reach my goal of becoming a Business Unit Director,” says Elliad. “The commitment Jabil has to its customers, employees and the community is world-class — I’m excited to be apart of the future here.”

Outside of work, Elliad is a true family man. He relishes every opportunity to spend time with his wife Ivory and three small children. “My wife and I are active in our church,” says Elliad “We truly appreciate the opportunities to be a blessing to others.” Additionally, he enjoys playing basketball, flag football, and other team sports to maintain his fitness.

Elliad dreams of someday exploring Europe with his family for its beautiful architecture, rich history, and culture. In the meantime, he would like to take his family on a Caribbean vacation. “Florida beaches are nice, but the Caribbean, well enough said…,” smiles Elliad.
