March 2023 Employee Highlight: Michelle McMahan

Each month, we like to highlight one of our excellent JSG employees who is doing great things. This March, we would like to shine the spotlight on Michelle McMahan, one of the VPs out of our Atlanta office!

Michelle’s employees describe her as patient, kind, and a great mentor. She is talented and shares her knowledge willingly and thoroughly, offering her assistance whenever necessary. She is always looking for new ways to help her team achieve their goals and puts herself in the mix by doing whatever it takes to help her team be a success. She is a wizard at developing, directing and leading high performance results. Michelle has expert level experience in engineering design services, MSP, IT, business operations, sales and account management. She is always available and has an “open door” policy for any and all things JSG related. She is professionalism personified and is in general, a great leader, mentor and supporter.

Michelle is a new grandmother! Her team is anxiously awaiting photos of her new grandbaby. She is a ball of fire and has energy to burn. She is beyond considerate and is fair and impartial in all matters. She has a smile that lights the room. She is southern hospitality and business savvy wrapped up in a big, red bow.

September 2022 Employee Highlight: Trina Lucas

Each month, we like to highlight one of our excellent JSG employees who is doing great things. This September, we would like to shine the spotlight on Trina Lucas, one of our Billing Specialists from the corporate office in Westmont, IL!

Trina was nominated for the exceptional work that she does, processing time for hundreds of employees each week. She shows care and urgency in how she approaches her work. Trina is quick to catch discrepancies, ensuring that payroll is completed on time and accurately each payment period. She is always ready to help when other employees have questions. Trina is dedicated to maintaining a high level of quality, which is reflected in her work.

Trina is a friendly and warm person. Her coworkers, both in her office and states away, think very highly of her. Next time you see Trina, ask her about the latest true crime documentary she has watched!


July Employee Highlight: Austin McKeever

This month, JSG would like to highlight an employee who has gone above and beyond recently—Austin McKeever! Each month, JSG’s employees have the opportunity to nominate one of their coworkers to be highlighted on our social media accounts. Austin’s coworkers sung his praises, noting his contribution to their branch’s recent growth.

To kick things off, Austin onboarded over 80 consultants over the past two months. He will be onboarding ANOTHER 80+ consultants in July! He has assisted them in learning our client’s new timekeeping system—something that Austin quickly picked up in order to help our consultants understand. In addition to all of this, Austin processes all of the weekly timesheets for a branch that started the year with a 220 headcount that will almost certainly be above 300 by August.

Outside of work, Austin does not slow down. His alma mater is the University of North Florida, not too far from the Jacksonville JSG location where he currently works. He spends his free time surfing and has some good stories to tell. Just ask him about the scar on his arm. (Hint: it is from a shark bite!)

We are so grateful to have someone as dedicated and motivated as Austin on our team. Thank you for all of your hard work! JSG thinks you are great.

May Employee Highlight: Welcome Back, Linnea!

Our HR department welcomed back a familiar face this past month—Linnea Rummage! For the past year and a half that we were without Linnea, JSG was always in the back of her mind. Dare we say, she missed us. Linnea says that she loves the people at JSG, as well as the opportunities for growth and making an impact. Her passion for service and people is what drew her to Human Resources. We are so grateful to have her back on the team!

Some fun facts about Linnea:
– She loves to read and is currently participating in a book club.
– Linnea is the proud parent of two cats, Harry and PJ (see below).
– She is a college football fan—most Saturdays in the Fall, you will find her watching and rooting for her favorite team (“Go Hawks” – Linnea Rummage).
– Linnea likes to spend her free time with the people she loves, her friends and family. Bonus points if they are going to a concert together.
– She likes to travel. She recently went to Mexico, and you will find her in St. Maarten in early 2023.
– Linnea originally wanted a Fashion Merchandising and Marketing degree but realized she wanted to pursue a degree in Human Resources.
– *EXTRA Fun Fact*: The president of the Society for Human Resources Management club at the University of Iowa (her alma mater) worked at JSG in HR and helped her get a job here in 2016.
