Finding a great place to work is tough. We all want to enjoy going to the place where we earn our living, but that is not always possible. We also want to work for a company that pays a fair wage and gives us the opportunity to advance within the company. When people find such a place, they stay there as long as they can.
Over the last few years, many people have seen their lives change dramatically. They have lost their jobs to a recession that has hit all parts of the globe. They have lost their houses and seen their savings dwindle. If they kept their jobs, the prospect of longer hours and no chance of a raise or promotion loomed large. Workers would see their retirement accounts rise and fall at the whims of the stock market. The security that was so prized for so long was now gone. Workers would now have to change their expectations regarding employment and their futures.
As this new shift emerged, some companies also had to rethink their workforce requirements. Many companies had to trim their workforces. Smaller workforces could possibly lead to lowering standards. The companies that were used to doing business a certain way would have to change their philosophy. Could they expect more productivity from fewer workers? Would the quality of the services or products that they provide suffer as well? Companies and workers had big decisions before them. And many didn’t know the answers to the big questions.
One company that did know the answers was JetBlue Airlines. JetBlue was founded on the premise of restoring flight travel to where it once was. And to do that, they needed a certain type of employee. They needed people that were dedicated to doing things the right way the first time. JetBlue knew that travelers would not continue to use their airline if they weren’t satisfied with the service. That’s why they seek only the best to join the ranks of their thousands of happy employees.
JetBlue.com has a special section called Work Here that is dedicated to hiring the people that keep their planes in the air and their customers happy. Work Here gives prospective employees all of the information that they need about the various job opportunities that exist at JetBlue Airlines. All job opportunities, benefit packages and job qualifications are listed. There is even a section where current employees tell their stories of working for JetBlue Airlines.

The companies that are going to survive this economic downturn are the companies that invest in the best workforces. These companies will be able to deliver the most to their customers. They will also be able to help the economy rebound by giving everyone access to fair wages and a good workplace environment. JetBlue seems like one of the companies that will survive.
