A Conversation with Janneh K. Wright of PRIMUS Business Management

Virtual Vocations is proud to announce a new member of the Virtual Vocations Employer Partner program, PRIMUS Business Management! PRIMUS is a business consulting firm that delivers virtual consulting support, specializing in accounting, human resources, and workflow management. Since their foundation in 2002, they have been at the forefront of remote consulting, a reflection of their forward-thinking approach. Committed to fostering a diverse and equitable work environment, PRIMUS prioritizes employee accountability and transparency, offering a balanced blend of remote work and impactful contributions. PRIMUS is always on the lookout for individuals who align with their vision of transforming businesses through expert guidance.

We had a conversation with Janneh K. Wright, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of PRIMUS Business Management, about the company’s journey with remote work and their criteria for choosing exceptional employees. Learn what to expect when applying for a position at PRIMUS and how to distinguish yourself as a remote candidate.

We went remote in 2020 due to Covid-19 and decided there was no need to go back. We established the remote systems and it’s been working for us.

Our organizational culture is mission-driven. We mostly work with non-profit organizations so the desire to want to add value and build communities is primary. Additionally, our organizational values are Proactive learning, Accountability, Community, Transparency, and Stewardship.

We look for work experience both in tenure and type of work, as well as job progression. A resume paints a picture of what the candidate brings to the table. As long as the LinkedIn profile tells the full picture not just the job title and dates worked, that’s good too.

I will add that we do run a thorough background and reference check on all employees. The background check is a non-negotiable part of our process. We have found that some folks tend to fabricate their experiences on their resumes and that is an automatic rejection on our side as transparency is one of our company values. Our employees also receive access to highly confidential information for our clients and their employees in order to do the work — including social security numbers and bank account information — so we are very careful to select candidates that are honest and trustworthy.

Our hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm Eastern Standard Time. We have been flexible to allow employees in different time zones to choose to work 9-5 EST, or 9-5 in their own time zone.
