Headquarters JMC hosted a virtual Pulse Check with leaders and employees to discuss key initiatives such as the FY21 Campaign Plan, project inclusion, and the Ready Army Civilian dashboard. The JMC Commander, COL Gardner, awarded five JMC employees with Beyond Expectation Peer awards, provided opening remarks to the workforce, and shared Covid-19 vaccination updates. “Our priority has always been the people, and we have a plan in place to provide vaccinations to the entire workforce, if you want it,” said Gardner. He went on to talk about the importance of suicide prevention, sexual harassment and assault prevention, diversity and inclusion, and isolation during nearly a year of telework. Gardner strongly encouraged the workforce to continue checking on each other during this difficult time.
The five JMC employees that received Beyond Expectation Peer awards were Cyrus Turner, Lexi Waters, Heather Tahja, Timothy Cumberworth, and Matthew Dyal. The Beyond Expectation Peer award is a command-wide initiative for employees to recognize other employees whose work accomplishments have significantly contributed to JMC’s mission, objectives, and goals.
The Pulse Check was coordinated by the JMC’s Transformation Action and Advisory Team (TA2T), a team focused on supporting and driving continuous improvement of command efficiency and effectiveness by monitoring, facilitating, and leading transformation efforts. The TA2T operates under a charter endorsed by JoEtta Fisher, the JMC Executive Director for Ammunition and the Deputy to the Commander, and includes members from the Munitions and Logistics Readiness Center, G-Staff, and special staff.
Pulse Checks are routinely scheduled at least twice per year. Headquarters, JMC employees unable to attend the virtual event may request a copy of the slides, transcript or MS Teams recording from the JMC PCA office.
