At JB Systems, we believe in giving back to a community that gives us so much. We’re fortunate to live in a community that values the idea of supporting local businesses. We’re lucky to have the campus communities of UW-Eau Claire, UW-Stout and Chippewa Valley Technical College nearby so that we can add great, quality graduates to our team. And, anyone who’s worked with us understands our love for coffee, so we’re pretty fortunate to have some great coffee shops in the area, too.
In other words, we’re very grateful for Eau Claire, WI and the greater Chippewa Valley community that shows us support. That’s why JB Systems believes in being community-focused and giving back when we can.
We’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to volunteer at two events in the past month that we’re always excited to be part of.
One of those events was Eau Claire’s annual “Our Spring Clean Up” that took place on May 16th. Our team members joined some of our fellow local businesses in cleaning up the sidewalks and streets of Eau Claire near our company’s location. With about 300 volunteers participating in the event, it’s great to see everyone in the community supporting one another, as well as supporting the growth and upkeep of our town. It reassures us that our business is located in a place that values the word community and the ideas of supportinglocal businesses.
Events like Our Spring Clean Up reflect values that JB Systems promotes and believes in. In the words of our fearless leader, Jerry Bauer says, “The downtown is very important to us and our company. Volunteering is a big part of the culture we’re trying to produce at our company.”
So far, we’re doing a good job of producing that culture at JB Systems by supporting the causes that are very important to our team members. Most recently, the JB Systems employees participated in Zayvier’s Chicken Chase, a 5K and 10K race/run/walk that’s part of Broiler Fest in Eleva, Wisconsin on May 30th. The event is an important cause to one of our team members, and we showed our support by running and walking in the race. Going a step further, our Art Director and Co-Owner, Meghan Bauer, sang the National Anthem at the beginning of the race.
“It was my first time singing the National Anthem, so it was a little nerve-racking and exciting. I greatly enjoy supporting my employees, and I always feel good knowing I’ve supported them.” Meghan says.
We take our desire to support the larger Eau Claire community and also apply it to our internal JB Systems community, supporting our team members wherever we can. If we can support our team members with a cause that’s close to them, then we know we will function best as a team in creating quality custom websites for our clients.
It’s a sense of community that keeps us going. Consider being part of the JB Systems community and contact us today about developing your company’s custom website!
