The Jaybro Story
Jaybro was started by Steve Joyce in early 1996. Steve had been in the construction industry for many years and he identified a need in the marketplace because he experienced
So Steve Joyce started Jaybro from his garage with the commitment to:
The Great Game of Business (GGOB)
Business has all the elements of a game: rules, scorecards, rewards for winning – and the chance of losing.
This Jaybro utilises principles from The Great Game of Business by Jack Stack to educate employees in the rules of business. By using open-book management techniques, we teach our employees to think and act like owners, regardless of their role.
Everyone at Jaybro has skin in the game. By rallying everyone around a common goal we encourage healthy competition and the drive to succeed. We empower individuals to take ownership of decisions and use fun incentives to boost engagement and reward achievements.
We play the Great Game of Business. This means we openly share business and financial information with employees, and everyone is kept informed about business goals.
How we play:
- Educate employees about the business
- Empower them to make business decisions
- Engage employees by rewarding them
Why adopt this approach?
People support what they help create. One of the key drivers of using this approach to business is creating accountability and responsibility in our team by showing them their own personal impact on the numbers. Engaged and motivated staff make our customers happy – and our business thrive!
When was the last time you felt fully informed about the financial status and goals of the organisation you work at?
At Jaybro, the goal is for great long-term success for both the company and the employee. Our open-book approach means our engaged and positive team is working towards a common goal, which in turn makes Jaybro a great place to work.
From humble beginnings to market leader in twenty short years.
Today Jaybro still lives by these values servicing civil and building contractors Australia wide. Steve’s legacy of providing the WOW factor to our customers is celebrated with a Chairman’s Award that is presented monthly to a team member, voted by their peers, recognising that they live by our mission statement:
‘To make life easier for construction contractors’
The Chairman’s Award is designed to reward Jaybro staff who go above and beyond to service our customers or think outside the box to provide solutions to a customer’s specific needs.
