Jared is probably one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. His caring and warm nature comes through in every interaction. He provides a great ease of conversation allowing a quick connection, making you feel both seen and heard.

How does company culture impact you and what do you do to contribute to it?

Our company culture and motto is to meet each and every candidate where they are, free of judgment. I’ve learned a great deal throughout the past six and a half years and am extremely fortunate to be able to genuinely help individuals of varying backgrounds every day.

Tell us about your community involvement.

Aside from providing employment opportunities to individuals on a daily basis, I am passionate about connecting them with any other community resources they may require at that time. Whether it’s finding an employee housing in the middle of a blizzard or providing food to a less fortunate individual, I’ve always tried to provide a positive experience.

Who do you look up to for inspiration or mentorship?

My parents, Jeannine and Kevin. I am beyond grateful and fortunate to have them in my life.

What strategies do you use to approach the day?

Remain grateful each and every day and always start the day on a positive note.

What important lesson have you learned in your career?

To always remain true to yourself and who you are.

What is the biggest risk you have ever taken?

My greatest risk was enlisting in the military—an uncertain leap that profoundly influenced my life.

How can the North Country improve its Gen IQ? (Gen IQ defined as an ability to lead, market to or innovate with multi-generational workplaces and marketplaces)

I believe that the North Country can improve its Gen IQ in a couple of ways. There needs to be more education around generational biases. Yes, there are generational differences, but we need to look past them and see the individuals. Once we recognize people in the workplace as individuals, we can then work on breaking down communication barriers.

Promoting self-awareness in the workplace is key to understanding preferred communication styles and work approaches. As individuals understand and embrace how they work and interact with each other, respect and collaboration forms within work groups. This can be achieved by utilizing personal assessment tools in the workplace.
