The associates at JBH&A are organized and creative. Their roles and responsibilities are well defined, yet they are completely team driven, so much so that they often shrug off any individual compliments and will expound on the involvement of other associates. We understand that we are all in this together, and we understand that the circumstances that makes one associate productive and comfortable is good for the entire team.
When Bridget Schalki came on board in 2004 it was of great importance to her that the JBH&A recognize that she put her family first. We did, we have and 15 years later, we still do. From the start, Bridget was given the freedom to set up a home office and she created a schedule that was flexible and adaptable. This made all the difference to her and allowed her to make exceptional contributions to the team. You can read about her professional skills here, but I can tell you that her character is one of seeing the big picture and paying attention to the details.
Here is a great article on Telecommuting!
Over the years I have witnessed the fabulous woman, mother and employee that Bridget is. I also learned that she makes sure that she gets a three to four mile speed walk in every evening, headset on most likely listening to Pink.
Bridget makes the most of her home office & flexible scheduling.
Because she is organized & resourceful, she has created the best of both worlds.
Working with associates with home offices works for JBH&A. Studies show that telecommuting keeps cost down for the employer, workers are more productive and there is less turnover. Works for me.
Have a Magical Day,
CEO, Jane Barr Horstman & Associates
