We invite you to get to know us by learning more about our philosophy and values at work and within our community.

Corporate Culture:  We don’t just say we work together like a family at HJI, in many ways we are literally family—with several members of the direct and indirect Houston family in the business. 

Community Involvement:  Giving back to the community is one of the greatest benefits of being a successful business.  The HJI team is pleased to support events, activities and causes within our community with our time, talent and resources.  We encourage employees to be active members of their schools and neighborhoods and provide opportunities to volunteer and support a variety of local organizations throughout the year.

Diversity & Inclusion:  As an MBE and WBE ourselves, HJI is especially committed to encouraging and supporting the growth and success of other qualified minority-based firms.   We engage minority-owned businesses as direct and indirect suppliers for several products and services at HJI.  In addition, we promote an inclusive workplace which reflects diversity and in which all beliefs, backgrounds and viewpoints are respected.

Staff Development & Training:  HJI believes its employees are the driving force behind our success. We realize that a career path, training and staff recognition are huge motivating factors for employees. As we hire new team members, we help them identify the path and training that will position them for increasingly responsible internal job openings. Investing in personal development programs such as motivational, sales, and technology training provides a broader understanding and creates a sense of ownership in the business.
