Each day Deborah Hill greets employees, visitors and customers with a friendly welcoming smile as they enter Jabil’s Headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida. It’s her warmth, genuine nature and thoughtfulness for others that sets the tone for our organizational culture. It’s to no surprise her caring nature is also reflected in her personal life. Deborah is on a mission to reduce and ultimately eliminate childhood hunger in the South St. Petersburg community. She decided to take action when she learned the statistics of children going to bed hungry each night had reached into the thousands in Pinellas County, many in her own community. She knew this couldn’t continue since studies have continually shown a link between nutrition and school performance. That’s why she started to plan the Bridge of Hope Kitchen, opening later this year, as a place where families could come for a hot meal. “I know what’s it’s like to have a mother sacrifice food for herself to benefit her children,” said Deborah. “My mother taught me, ‘If you have a piece of bread, all of us have a piece of bread'.”

When she was a young girl, Grace Luan dreamt of bringing big change to the world. But, in order to do that, it was important to have well-rounded, diverse experience and career. With experience in the medical industry, communications, linguistics and business, Grace uses all her experiences to better herself and those around her. Having a unique educational path hasn’t limited Grace in regard to her current business career. Instead, her bachelor’s degree in the medicine and applied psychology with a master’s in linguistics has provided her a unique competency in business meetings: “My backgrounds give me unique ways to look at problems and help me form creative ideas,” she said. “I sometimes use my experience working at a hospital to compare the health operation systems with our manufacturing processes.” As Business Unit Program Manager at Jabil Huangpu, she’s making an impact beyond sharing her diverse ideas. Grace also empowers others so they, too, can share their ideas and skills by being an English tutor at the Huangpu facility for two different production line groups. Following her dream of making big change, Grace has brought attention to the benefits of a unique career, having empowered others to diversify their careers and setting an inspiring example for her peers to follow.

Oftentimes, the word “improvement” can hold a negative connotation for many. The improvement of one’s work, or a production line’s efficiency, can mean unhappy managers or customers. But for Davide Cuccaro, a manufacturing engineering technician at Jabil Marcianise, improvement is an opportunity for discovery and growth. He explained, “To understand why something didn’t work is always exciting for me. My satisfaction comes from finding the defect and eliminating the root cause.” While a circuit board-related process his team relied on was functioning, it needed some improvements. After extensive analysis of the current process and several rounds of experimentations, Davide was able to reach a solution that minimized waste and increased effectiveness. Davide’s motto of “always work ahead” is exemplified in all that he does at Jabil. He encourages colleagues to look beyond the first solution to find more simple, effective ones and to prevent problems without waiting for them to arise. His dedication to Ingenuity is seen in the bonds that he forms with his coworkers and how he challenges himself day in and day out to improve for the customer.
