JK Distributors - A realistic business simulation
JK Distributors, Inc. (JKD), a high touch - high tech business simulation. As a mock company, JK Distributors sells equipment and supplies to residential institutions such as hotels, motels, hospitals, and university dormitories. As employees of JK Distributors and its partner companies, participants develop technical and soft skills by working in teams to solve real work problems. Participants learn how a business operates as they deal with workflow bottlenecks, incomplete orders, the effect tardiness and absenteeism, complaints from customers and interpersonal conflicts. By working in a range of positions from general manager to payroll clerk, participants gain hands-on experience of being supervised and supervising. This is all done in a safe and supportive environment full of opportunities to learn, reflect and grow.
