Harristown, Ill., April 24, 2020 – For the sixth consecutive time, Jenner Ag has been nominated for the prestigious Great Game of Business All-Star Award.
The prestigious All-Star Award celebrates companies from around the globe that have fully embraced and are on the leading-edge of an open-book management policy. To be nominated for an All-Star Award, a company must demonstrate a sincere belief in their team members, an unrivaled level of business transparency and the willingness to share their knowledge on how to help others succeed.
Implementing The Great Game of Business has profoundly impacted the culture at Jenner Ag, allowing associates a sense of trust and providing an open line of communication that leads to strong results. “After 10 years of playing The Great Game of Business, we still find new ways of making The Great Game exciting for associates, while raising the bar,” says Steve Jones, CEO of Jenner Ag. “We continue to see benefits with improved transparency. This allows our associates to grow and improve, both personally and professionally, on their level of financial knowledge. I believe it is the only sustainable way to operate a business.”
Jenner Ag has been playing the Great Game of Business as a company for 10 years. During that time, the company has received the All-Star Award two times – one of only a select few to claim this honor – and received seven nominations for various awards. The Great Game of Business will announce the 20th annual All-Star Award Team and All-Star Champions at the 28th Annual Gathering of Games, the world’s largest open-book management conference, September 9-11 in Dallas.
Agriculture has been declared essential at both the federal and state levels—something we in agriculture already knew, but find comfort in hearing. With that directive, all Jenner Ag locations will remain open and ready to serve the Jenner Nation. The reality is, spring will come as it always does, and we stand ready to support your mission of feeding your families and the world.
That said, our Jenner Nation employees and customers are our biggest priority, and we will need to make a few changes in light of COVID-19/coronavirus to protect them. Rest assured, our Service, Parts and Sales teams remain fully active and ready to meet your needs during the 2020 planting season. But please make note of the following adjustments to help flatten the curve and help keep you and us safe and healthy:
Effective immediately, all Jenner Ag locations are closed to walk-in traffic.
Service will continue, both in the field and in our shops, throughout spring planting and beyond. As always, you may reach our technicians by phone or e-mail.
In the event that our Field Service Technicians visit your location, whether ag retail or farm, we ask that you
Follow the social distancing requirements of maintaining more than 6 feet of space from any other person.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before the technician arrives.
Parts curbside pickup is available during regular hours. If you aren’t comfortable with someone coming to your vehicle, simply inform our Parts Specialists, and they will put your parts outside the door for you.
New and used equipment sales will also continue during this time – we know many of you are looking to upgrade or update before spring to ensure maximum productivity and uptime. Our Account Managers are at your service via phone or e-mail, and you can find all used equipment inventory online at www.jennerag.com.
Of course, the situation is evolving even as we write this. We continue to monitor the situation, and we will update as necessary going forward. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our teams:
We know that you, like us, are monitoring the global situation regarding COVID-19/Coronavirus. In these quickly changing times, and understanding this disease’s tendency to spread not just by direct contact but by community spread, we want to assure you that we are also changing the way we do business at all three locations.
Our associates are regularly receiving information about the importance of personal hygiene and frequent, thorough hand washing. We have communicated that it is more vital than ever for them to stay home if they or their friends and family are sick. And, our showrooms, parts counters and shops have instructions to sanitize daily, or more frequently, in high touch, high traffic areas.
As a small business ourselves, we understand the importance of uptime and maximizing your productivity. Understanding the critical role agriculture plays in our society, we will remain open to serve our valued customers, but we will make adjustments with the hope of helping to flatten the curve, and as always, we make associate and customer safety a priority.
If you need parts, we will be offering curbside pickup at all locations during store hours. With a simple phone call or e-mail, our parts specialists will take the parts right to your truck at the curb. In addition, you can visit our website – www.jennerag.com/parts/case-ih-parts to purchase your Case IH parts online.
In addition, effective immediately, we will limit:
-Visitors at our locations – Application, Agriculture and Precision. This means stopping all non-essential visits. Delivery drivers and other outside contractors are asked to listen to their bodies, and not visit our facilities if they have symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath or cough, or if they have had potential exposure to others who exhibit those symptoms.
-Length of visits at our locations – We ask all logistics personnel to limit the time spent at our facilities. Stay in the trucks as much as possible, and do everything possible to expedite the time outside the vehicle.
-Meetings – At Jenner Ag, we have always and will always prioritize relationships above all else. We have built our business on people, and our unerring ability to connect and serve. While that continues to be of utmost importance, that also means for the time being, limiting face-to-face contact.
Know that as this situation continues to develop, we remain focused on serving you to the absolute best of our abilities. Agility has been a key facet of Jenner Ag’s business strategy for nearly 60 years. Even when we can’t be present personally, we will remain in close contact through phone, FaceTime and other electronic methods according to your preference. We, like you, are committed to doing everything we can to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Our account managers, parts specialists and the entire Jenner Nation stand ready to serve you at the level you demand and deserve. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your account manager. We appreciate your understanding, and your confidence in us as a business partner.
