People are power. At Jacmel, we understand the value embedded within our people-centric portfolio companies and the clear link between human capital development and company growth. After making an investment, we evaluate impact initiatives geared towards improving the well-being of each specific portfolio company, their employees, and their families.
Through our Office of Impact framework, developed with our partners at CapEQ, portfolio company staff—and subsequently portfolio companies as a whole—benefit from a range of inclusive economic initiatives, including but not limited to: employee skill building, implementing protocol to create wealth creation, working to constantly improve employee access to educational opportunities, and actively increasing the implementation of diversity and inclusion efforts. Initiatives are selected by the particular needs of each company, which naturally vary based on structure, sector focus, geographic footprint, and more. Our tailored approach to enhancing wealth creation, economic mobility, and equity not only improves skills and retention, but we believe also positively influences the ways in which companies operate within their communities.
