We believe that employees are far more than labor or resources. So, in 2006, we created the Jason’s Deli Leadership Institute to nurture the individual, interpersonal, spiritual and professional well-being of company leaders, managers and co-workers.
We offer our employees free classes in:
- Money Management
- Ethical Leadership
- Situational Leadership
- Emotional Intelligence and Servant Leadership
- The Core Values of our company
In addition to the Leadership Institute, Joe Tortorice Jr. also started a program called The Fishing School in order to empower hourly employees to better themselves professionally by becoming managers and leaders. In addition, company leaders also created a non-profit foundation to help our employees when in crisis.
“We are truly in the people business. Our product happens to be food.”
