WHY WE EXIST:
A 2012 Gallup survey of American workers found that 70% of people are either disengaged at work, doing just enough to not get fired, or are actively sabotaging their employers. This has tremendous economic costs, but more concerning is the fact that we spend almost a third of our adult lives at work. If work is a drag, that has tremendous consequences for themselves, the families, neighbors and larger community where these workers live.
It doesn’t have to be like that. If people can find a way to align work with something that makes a difference and they are passionate about, and feel that the thirds of life spent at the office means something more than just earning a paycheck, they come alive. They give 100% at work, their relationships improve and, at scale, this effect can transform communities.
WHO ARE WE?
AJA was created by the Dennis Family. Chelsea Bay Dennis is the creator of C.Bay Design (Graphic design for good-for-the-world causes) and The Conscious Entrepreneur (Coaching and consulting for individuals with a passion for good-for-the-world ideas and meaningful work aligned with your values, strengths and what makes you come alive.) She loves what she does, and desires for others to feel the same. So she started an Awesome Job Alert FB page in her Michigan community that was dedicated to being a resource for meaningful job openings in the area. Her husband Aaron, owner of Stone Hut Studios, and his brother Nick at Binary Trail chipped in their talents to build the website.
