JLL Promotes Equality in the Workplace
In the age of MeToo, companies have had to step up and take a close look at their cultures. What may have been acceptable in years’ past is rightfully no longer, and those who make steps forward may continue to enjoy success, while operating with a work environment that brings them pride.
Real estate and investment management firm JLL has taken those essential steps to make itself a strong example for the construction and development industries. This month, the 2020 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) recognized the company with 324 other firms across 50 industries.
The GEI tracks the financial performance of public companies that are dedicated to supporting such values as gender equality through policy development, representation and transparency. “Building and fostering a truly inclusive and diverse culture promotes richer discussions and better decision making,” JLL Chief Human Resources Officer Mary Bilbrey said.
“We continue to hold ourselves accountable for achieving greater gender equality and are committed to transparency with our people and our clients about our progress,” she added. “We are honored to be recognized by Bloomberg for our efforts.”
