Access to education and opportunities are more difficult for people in some of the communities where we operate, including Belo Horizonte, Brazil. It’s our responsibility to help.

 

For two decades, our site in Belo Horizonte has provided young, at-risk girls ages 8-18 opportunities for education, advancement and equality. Working with government-run program Projecto Gente Grande (Great People Project), Jabil has engaged more than 1,000 girls in the program over the years.

Making Mental Health a Priority

Making Mental Health a Priority

Employee Well-Being

Jabil is committed to the entire health and well-being of our employees–including their psychological health. When they’re at their best, they’re able to best serve those who count on them every day — their family, friends, customers, colleagues and community.

 

Mental illness impacts millions of people every year, including one in five U.S. adults. Many face stigma, and fewer than half of them receive treatment. We want to eliminate the stigma around mental health and help our employees and their families identify and leverage the mental health resources they need, wherever they may be.

Water for People

Tarahumara Community

In 2019, Jabil employees around the world, from China to Mexico and Hungary to Spain spent time in their communities living their values and making an impact. Indeed, some team members’ most valuable work happens outside our factory walls.

 

For the last four years, Victor Sigala, Sr. Multimedia Design Specialist, has led a team of Jabil Chihuahua volunteers to Norogachi, Mexico, in the remote Sierra Madre Mountains, to build rainwater capture systems for the indigenous Tarahumara people. Crippled by drought, village residents must walk as many as five miles to secure water for drinking, sanitation and animals.

People with disabilities make valuable contributions to Jabil everyday, and we are working to ensure they can continue to make a powerful and expanding impact long into the future.

 

About 15 percent of the global population has some type of disability, and yet their unemployment rate is double that of their non-disabled counterparts. We are working to change this in our own operations, and we have been making good progress.

Empowering Women through Health Education

Investing in women’s health and providing opportunities to grow professionally in a safe and respectful workplace is an important step in creating sustainable communities and economies.

 

That investment is especially important for Jabil’s more than 30,000 female employees working in Asia, many of whom migrated hundreds of miles from their families to work. With limited health knowledge, myths and stigma can lead to unhealthy behaviors that leave the women vulnerable to illness and disease.

Freeing Employees from Bonded Labor

Bonded Labor

Our efforts to protect employees often begin far outside our factory walls and sometimes thousands of miles away, where migrant workers begin their journeys for a better life. Jabil is working build a safer path, helping to shield them from bonded labor.

 

More than 164 million people migrate for work, and many face a life of bonded labor or other forms of modern slavery. We were among the first in our industry to address bonded labor in the electronics supply chain, protecting the rights of vulnerable migrant workers.
