Training and Development Building
Inspired by our core value of “forward-thinking,” the training facility will provide classroom-style and hands-on experimental learning to the DJ team in service and installation. We felt that this was an opportunity to give back (another core value) and are working with local schools and community groups to visit and use the facility to educate and expose their groups to the role that the trades play in today’s world and the lucrative, stable career path it can provide.
“When you talk about family as a core value, what a commitment, what an investment into the company’s employees. It really shows you how genuinely interested they are and how attached they are to the culture and how the company has evolved.” Comments Ken Collins, Training and Development Director at Dave Jones. He continues, “Just as important as the building is what happens inside. We have a motto that we want to see people for who they could be, not as they are. Meaning I know people today may not have the mechanical inclination. They may not know how to use a tape measure. But you know what? We see potential here. And not only see potential but provide hope. So, if we can take what we did here by turning our vision of a T&D building and turning it into reality, we can help people take the vision of their careers and turn it into a reality. That’s our mission.”
This facility is the latest addition to a growing Dave Jones campus in Monona that includes a Team Headquarters building, a Service Team building, and a Fleet and Facilities Team building.
