If you are excited by our mission and fully in sync with our values, we encourage you to apply to join our team! Before you submit your application, we understand that you might have questions about what it is really like to work at JB Media Group. Here are a few things you might want to know about our company culture before going through the application process:

  • Our founder believes that transparency is important and we take steps to make sure that news and information is freely shared among the team.
  • Our leadership team values staff expertise and insights and invites open dialogue regularly. We take time to discuss and address issues that come up during regular team meetings, quarterly planning sessions, and annual retreats.
  • We are B Corp Certified! We believe that business can be a force for good and we are proud to be part of the B Corp movement.
  • Service to people and the planet has been part of our company culture since the beginning. Our community involvement and JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion) initiative engages us in the critical issues of our times that we care about and keeps us connected on a human level.
  • We build into our staff capacity workload a devoted percentage of time for team culture participation and professional development. Most agencies don’t factor that into their utilization rate goals.
  • Accountability is a priority within our structure and in our interactions with each other. We have an intentional organizational structure to provide clarity while avoiding strict hierarchy, and we practice Crucial Conversations to hold us accountable to healthy communication.
  • We respect each other as adults and have team leads to support and guide us, not managers to micro-manage us.
  • We have a professional judgment vacation policy which means we are self-directed enough to enjoy the benefits of flexible time off while ensuring our quality work crosses the finish line on time.

I do want to commend the leadership team for leading us through the storm, and helping us come out the other side. Admittedly, I was terrified. But the ingenuity and collaboration of the leadership team was incredible at finding and obtaining resources (and clients!). All of this makes me feel proud and thankful to be a part of a team that cares about the people.

On our COVID times, from our Staff Happiness Survey
