Diversity is not only a strategic priority at JLL, it’s an integral part of our value system.
With changing demographics in the workplace, marketplace and across the globe, we recognize that we must reflect and embody this diversity to maintain and strengthen the close connections and valuable relationships we’ve built with our employees, partners, clients and communities. By cultivating a dynamic workplace, we ensure that the differences among our people will be woven into the fabric of our firm in a positive way.
- Attract, develop and retain great talent with various backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.
- Create a culture that unleashes the full potential of all employees
- Support our clients’ supplier diversity initiatives by creating strong partnerships with women and minority-owned businesses.
We’re proud of the progress achieved through our diversity and inclusion initiatives. In 2014, DiversityComm featured JLL on the “Best of the Best” lists for its national diversity. The list features a mix of FORTUNE 1000 companies, government agencies and educational institutions, all of which are considered pioneers in the professional community by the innovative solutions they have to empower diverse workforces. In the last year alone, we achieved measurable growth across its diversity platform:
- 32% of JLL U.S. employees belong to one of our four Employee Resource Groups, which provide resources and programs to support members of the company’s African American, Hispanic, female and LGBT workforce
- In 2013, half of JLL real estate transactions and deals over $500,000 were comprised of diverse teams
- 70% of members on JLL’s Board of Directors are female or minority, outperforming other DiversityInc. Top 50 Companies
JLL also recently earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2015 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality. JLL is one of 366 major United States businesses receiving top marks this year, making it a “Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.”
