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.

The ‘Simple Things’ Drive Harrison’s Ambitious Spirit

Harrison Riggs

Buyer
Memphis

As a Buyer at Jabil’s Memphis facility, Harrison Riggs spends most of his day interacting with vendors and suppliers from around the the world. “It’s fascinating to see the cultural similarities and differences across America, Europe, and Asia,” said Harrison.

But it’s more than that. “When you step back and look at the overall picture, it’s inspiring to think that even though we’re thousands of miles apart, we’re all contributing to one common goal,” added Harrison.

It’s that forward thinking approach and ambitious attitude that has Harrison wanting to one day contribute at Jabil on a larger scale. “I would love to be part of a positive change that has a global implications and impact,” said Harrison. “And with a strong management team and the tools available within Jabil, this is achievable sooner rather than later.”

More importantly, achieving this success stems from Harrison’s belief in Jabil’s continuous improvement philosophy and environment which motivates and empowers employees to develop new process improvements based around efficiency.

“It’s in my DNA,” said Harrison. “Continuous improvement isn’t strictly based on how you can make your job easier, but how you can improve everyone’s in which your job touches.”

Outside of work, it’s the simple things that make Harrison smile. “Nothing compares to spending time with my beautiful wife and son, whether it’s going to the park or a stroll around the neighborhood,” said Harrison. “These moments really help me unwind on weekends.”

While Harrison’s been fortunate to travel abroad, his adventurous spirit and curiosity remains. “One place I would love to explore is Asia - the traditions and culture would be amazing to experience,” said Harrison. “It doesn't hurt that I love Asian food either.”
