Jackrabbit’s 5 Resolutions

Jackrabbit helps dance, gymnastics, swim, music, arts, learning, martial arts, cheer, and children’s care organizations with more than 11,000 locations get back to doing what they are passionate about.

By helping them to leverage technology – something Jackrabbit is very passionate about – Jackrabbit’s clients get out from behind their desks and teach, lead and guide and grow their businesses.

It’s important to articulate resolutions.  And year ends and beginnings provide the information and opportunity to reflect and move forward. We have 5 “resolutions” that we consider critical to being successful at taking on the challenges and opportunities of the new year.


Give Back – Jackrabbit gives back to each of the communities of which it is fortunate to be included. This includes its headquarters business community, the many communities in the US and Canada where its employees work in their home offices, and the community of clients that we happily serve. From supporting local food banks, international children’s foundations, and customer crisis needs, Jackrabbit gives back in ways that it feels can be most effective.


Encourage Safe and Healthy Living  Healthy and safe employees make happier employees! And happy employees are the best at making customers happy. Jackrabbit understands this and encourages safe and healthy living through physical and spiritual fitness, benefits perks as well as company policies. Jackrabbit always offers healthy options and stresses safety during activities and events.

By taking the time to renew the passions that fuel our actions, we promulgate improvement in all factions of our lives – including our work lives. Jackrabbit takes this to heart, looking at metrics and feedback to continue to raise the bar on excellence every year.


Come Together – With customers around the world, Jackrabbit understands the importance of coming together. That’s why once per year, Jackrabbit offers venues for doing so to all. East and West User Conferences are the largest of these events for customers, but regional trainings also provide opportunities for peers in the Jackrabbit world to unite.


Recharge – Jackrabbit completely supports providing opportunities for its team to renew, revitalize and recharge so that – regardless of what teams are doing as a unit or as individuals and professionally or personally – they are mentally and emotionally equipped for it. Recharging is essential to the ability to fire on all cylinders and maintain excellence, satisfaction, and happiness. Departments choose annual team building activities, the company has an off-site retreat to relax and have fun and to spend some creative time focusing on how the company, each department, and individuals should and could be changing and improving.
