Social Development

Social development is of importance here at JIO as human resource is our main asset and as such, we need to continuously monitor and ensure that team members are satisfied. Offering the chance to employees to learn a new job, get new skills and grow whenever possible.

  • Internal promotion is the favoured means of recruitment
  • Facilitating studies and education by adjusting the shift work for employees who are attending school or university forms a part of our mandate.
  • Giving equal opportunity to everyone such as providing options on the shift work to those whose religious belief may require flexibility. 
  • Offering the chance to employees to participate in sports or social activities. We have a Netball, Football and a Basket Ball teams consisting of members from all locations. Hoops have been installed at the Vineyards & Portmore Toll Plazas and a football field was constructed behind the Portmore Toll Plaza to facilitate training and competitive matches. 

Since 2012 the JIO team actively participate in the annual Sigma Corporate Run. This 5 Kilometre race has a dual purpose. It is designed to fundraise for charitable causes that especially benefit children and also to inspire fun, fitness and camaraderie among Jamaica’s business community.
