Factors which made JLL as One of India’s Best Place to Work
The annual survey has recognized JLL India as one of India’s best places to work basis a few distinguishing factors which include the following:
Collaboration is one of our core business values, and by the nature of our business, at the center of our work. At JLL, we offer a set of specialised services to our clients, and often these services are offered in conjunction, sequentially or as a part of a larger bouquet of services.
Diversity & Inclusion
We believe that for a workplace to truly succeed, Diversity must be followed by Inclusion. Workplace Diversity is not just an item on the agenda waiting to be ticked a business objective. Being in a business that thrives on people, JLL has all the more reason to nurture a diverse workforce that brings in diverse perspectives and capabilities.
JLL is the pioneer and one of the very few companies in the real estate industry which have written down incentive schemes and profit-sharing policies providing the clear line of sight to employees in terms of their variable payment and other incentives vis-à-vis their performance.
Supporting the Community
At JLL, we believe that our employees are our biggest strength and as a company, we aim to constantly identify gaps and develop policies which address the concerns faced by our employees.
The motive is to deal with the “I-am-not-valuable” identity crisis if any faced by the employees and to partner with them on a personal level as well so that the desired professional result can be achieved.
In addition to JLL staff, the firm has been successfully delivering increased value to clients, shareholders and stakeholders. Applying social and environmental filters to our work and services is our underlying principle of success. To give this principle of success, a shape and form, we have recently launched JLL India’s first-ever formally registered CSR trust called ‘Building a Better Tomorrow Foundation’.
The trust aims to consolidate our ever-increasing efforts to serve our community in better and meaningful ways while having its objectives mapped to the firm’s CSR policy. Under this trust, JLL India has identified four key focus areas, as mentioned below and will now be seen Building a Better Tomorrow with even more vigour!
- Child Welfare & Reducing Child Mortality
- Employment enhancing vocational skills
- Ensuring environmental sustainability
- Women empowerment
