With a background in engineering, Luis Armenta meets customer demands every day on the production floor at Nypro Baja. But nothing could prepare him for the news he received one day ... his mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Needing to secure another viable blood donor (besides himself), Luis frantically contacted more than 50 people in just a few days. For those facing serious health battles, the strict donation requirements make the process very frustrating and emotional. Luis wanted to help others who face similar obstacles, so he created Comparte Vida (translated to “Share Life”): a registry of Jabil employees who meet the basic requirements and are available to donate blood for coworkers and their loved ones. Luis’ inspirational story captured the hearts of his Nypro Baja family – 303 employees are registered volunteers and 73 have already donated blood. Luis’ desire to help others comes naturally and is reinforced each day at work. He explains, “Jabil's culture encourages and embraces supporting one another. We're all a big family at Jabil. We are not our titles; we are humans, and we need to do what’s right.”

It doesn’t take long being around Tamas Szoke to feel the energy, passion and excitement he displays for taking great care of our people and the environment at Jabil’s facility in Tiszaújváros. It started at a young age, curious about how the human world interacts with the natural world. That set the foundation for his interest in environmental sustainability and helping lead workplaces in reducing their carbon footprint and the health and safety of others. “I’m always thinking about the employee experience; how can my customer, the employee, work safely each day?” said Tamas. “It takes a bold approach to enact initiatives and projects that make the right change and do the most good – new challenges provide opportunities to raise the bar even higher for ourselves.” When Tamas first took the role as Environment, Health & Safety Manager, he used his ingenuity to create a warehouse operation built on impeccable safety; equipping forklifts with collision warning systems, cameras and signal lights. As a leader, Tamas says “You need to ensure everyone’s aware of the potential risks of not working safely, including the impact your actions can have on others.”

Diversity is an important part of Ewa Marecka’s personal and professional life. Originally from Poland, Ewa and her family moved to the United States in 1991, assimilating after learning English through American music and television.

Throughout her career at Jabil, she has held a variety of positions in production and quality to her current role as the site’s Human Resources Assistant.

Ewa uses her position to support Jabil Hanover Park’s diversity efforts by overseeing recruitment efforts, hiring production employees and managing temporary labor. “We’re very diverse here, with employees from Bosnia, Columbia, Guatemala, Lithuania, Mexico, the Philippines and Vietnam,” Ewa said. “In addition to meeting job qualifications, I also look for candidates who will fit this diverse culture.”

Serhiy Podlevskiy, operations project manager at Jabil Uzhgorod, brings our culture of Inspiration to youth in the Ukraine community and beyond. Recently, Serhiy was asked to organize a workshop as part of a community festival. “To make a technical workshop interesting, we needed a charismatic leader who is also well-skilled in our assigned topic of problem-solving tactics. Serhiy is a proactive leader, who is highly-dedicated to self-development, so I knew he was the right person for the job!” said Marina Kapats, human resources manager. Using his Six Sigma Lean skills, Serhiy taught risk assessment and root cause analysis to more than 100 students. He came up with a creative approach to the topic by having students create a process for cooking the best steaks using Jabil’s standard production methodologies. Through this innovative approach, he was able to teach the students about Jabil, the industry and the fun ways to apply technical skills. His superpower is his hunger for new knowledge and to continuously learn and improve. “If I have a chance to do so, I’m always happy to help and encourage people around me,” he said.

Quality has always been a part of Eric Qian’s career, from his education in engineering to his first job as a customer quality engineer to his current role at Jabil Wuxi. “Jabil’s culture of Integrity is what connects my passion with my work,” said Eric. “Sometimes my peers joke that I come across like the ‘integrity police’, but it’s just too important for me to remove it from everything I do!” While his work aligns to Jabil’s culture of integrity, Eric is also a responsible leader in the community. He is part of Jabil Wuxi’s Dandelion Group, the site’s community outreach committee, and regularly volunteers at the group’s organized activities. His favorite event is the movies with the blind, where employees talk through movie scenes, so the visually impaired members of the community can still enjoy major motion pictures. Born in Wuxi, Eric is especially helpful at these events because he is one of the few who can fluently speak the local language and uses his unique skill to help those in need. This also demonstrates how his trustworthy work ethic extends into the community: “It’s all about trust, and the visually impaired quickly connect with me because of our shared ability to speak the same language,” Eric said.

After she joined Jabil, she quickly realized her work ethic and skills were a perfect match for our company. “Ever since my childhood, my parents have instilled the importance of honest and ethical behaviors, regardless of the situation,” she said. “For me, this value of Integrity is important for my work in finance and is crucial in treating others with respect and fairness.” As a Senior Tax Accountant at Jabil Guadalajara, Janeth stays accountable with her actions, always keeping in mind the best interests of her entire team.

Teresa donates to Father Al’s Children Foundation, Inc., in the Philippines, to help with financial support for children’s education funds. She was once a recipient of a secondary school scholarship given by the organization, so supporting them now is just her simple way of showing gratitude.
