[pullquote]As one fellow employee noted, “For him to take the time out of his busy schedule to help make me better at my job, when it isn’t even his responsibility, speaks volumes of his character and his commitment to the company. I can honestly say, I would not understand what I do today if it wasn’t for Jake!”[/pullquote] Jake explains topics in detail on a level which is understandable to the employee. He ensures other staff members are better at their jobs by passing on his knowledge.
