Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
JLL utilises a variety of training modes, such as end user training and train-the trainer, depending on the client’s needs. We enable our clients with a variety of training materials; depending on JLL’s scope of work, materials to support training sessions can include:
- Detailed user guide (Word)
- Classroom learning guide (PowerPoint)
- Quick reference guide (tri-fold or one page)
Training materials are designed to be process-oriented and promote user understanding by following a step-by-step progression. Real world examples are used to convey training concepts. As required, they include process descriptions, instructions, exercises, and screen shots specific to the defined user roles.
JLL can conduct training classes in person as well as via WebEx to initially train as well as to refresh users on key application and process concepts. This training has been performed for customers with employees all around the world.
With a successful outcome of the training process, JLL participates in a readiness assessment to be conducted jointly with an organisation's leadership to ensure that the production environment and project team are fully prepared to go-live.

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

JLL is determined to play a full part in mitigating climate change. In addition to our own sustainability target, through the advice and services we provide to our clients, we will work to fulfil our corporate purpose of shaping the future of real estate for a better world.

JLL has a net zero carbon target certified by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). In 2021, by signing The Climate Pledge, we committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2040 across all areas of our operations, including the client sites we manage globally.

In November 2021, the annual UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in
Glasgow provided a forum to discuss the fight for climate change. JLL was honoured to attend COP26 and to be appointed as one of the built environment leads for the High-Level Climate Champions team to rally business leadership towards a net zero carbon and resilient built environment. JLL’s efforts included engaging with stakeholders to encourage them to align their climate commitments with the UN Race to Zero campaign.

Our conversations at COP26 were focused on the role of commercial buildings in addressing climate change. We welcomed many positive outcomes from COP26. Many countries committed to new net zero targets, with 90% of emissions now covered by
a net zero target.

While COP26 confirmed that the real estate industry is making progress,
there’s still a long way to go. By partnering with the World Economic
Forum, JLL has established 10 Green Building Principles to guide real
estate investors and occupiers on how to implement and achieve their
net zero portfolios. Simplifying the process using a roadmap offers
the potential to accelerate action across every across all industries, asset types and regions.
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

JLL has a strong commitment to contributing positively to society. During and post the COVID-19 crisis we have supported our employees, our clients and their communities through those challenging times.
Battles like Covid-19 often help people focus on what's truly important. We are a company comprised of human beings and it is important to understand how a crisis can impact us and how we do business. Covid has raised concerns around employee burnout, safety and well-being, as well as questions about finding and retaining talent.
For employees, JLL’s return-to-work guidance is underpinned by our “Flex for your Day” policy. Flex for your Day is about agreeing where and when work is done in a way which works for the employee role, the team and clients. Flex for your Day empowers employees to agree informal changes to their working pattern with their manager. This includes working from work or a location other than the contracted office and/or temporary flexibility in your usual working hours.
JLL is also supportive of employees who wish to pursue a formal change to their working arrangements post-Covid and employees may formally request such a change.
As a technology company, JLL is using the latest technology to support the comfort, well-being and security of employees as they return to the office. These include technology for occupancy planning and monitoring, booking resources such as a locker or desk, social distancing, employee experience and office hygiene. At our facilities, JLL promotes social distancing, enhance cleaning protocols, and temperature screening.
In parallel, JLL supports its client by deploying for them technology solutions to ensure the safety of their staff and compliance with local occupancy and health regulations. Our solutions address areas such as managing Covid-19 procedures, ensuring compliance, optimising cleaning, PPE tracking, employee communications and contact management.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

We are working with clients and charity partners to make an impact on social issues that matters to us to advance economic inequality. We are focused on contributing to a world where quality of life and social resilience is improved across all communities.
In the UK JLL have partnered with Crisis as our national charity partner since 2017. The partnership raised over £1.28 million to help over 1,300 people into housing, and has seen us collaborate on a range of initiatives to try and create sustainable solutions to end homelessness.
The partnership has seen JLL lend its property expertise and influence to support Crisis’ Plan to End Homelessness, as well as providing strategic input to Crisis’ Best Practice, Policy, Retail and Senior Management teams. JLL also worked pro bono to establish a new location for the Crisis UK Skylight centres in London and Edinburgh, creating a truly holistic collaboration across all areas of Crisis services and JLL teams.
JLL colleagues climbed mountains, hiked hills and organised countless raffles, bake sales and quizzes for Crisis. Our fundraising specifically funds housing coaches in each of the Crisis Skylight centres across the UK, who are dedicated to giving more people access, support and advice on housing.
Many JLL staff have also volunteered with Crisis, working directly with people transitioning out of homelessness.
JLL also contributed to a feasibility study for an innovative solution to end homelessness – 'Housing First' – which informed the Government's £28 million investment to Housing First.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

JLL is committed to a work environment where our people and clients feel valued, welcome and comfortable being themselves. Promoting equality and ensuring we have an inclusive culture where we recognise and address unconscious bias or prejudice – whether involving race, sex, background, disability, sexuality, or other factors - creating a supportive environment that drives innovation, creativity and results.
JLL’s commitment to diversity and inclusion includes initiatives and trainings throughout the year. For example, regions hold unconscious bias trainings, celebrate Diversity & Inclusion Week, Black History Month, National Coming Out Day and International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
In 2018, we successfully established and committed to a goal to improve representation of females in senior leadership over the next three years. We also developed a three-year global strategy to build a more diverse talent pipeline. We have made considerable progress in gender balance at the executive level, increasing our women in leadership by five points, from 12.9% to 18.1%. Despite the additional pressures on caregivers during the Covid-19 lockdowns, we maintained stability in our gender representation numbers and further committed to developing the internal pipeline of diverse talent: in 2020, women account for 50% of our promotions in executive leadership roles.
Our global toolkit for LGBTQ and Pride branding, campaign assets and marketing materials enables business and local initiatives.
JLL has published its first Ethnicity Pay Gap (EPG) report in the UK entitled Ethnicity Pay Gap Report 2020: Race Action Plan. As part of the report, JLL has published its Race Action Plan that it has put in place to narrow the EPG. This includes targets to ensure that 15% of employees and 10% of directors are from ethnically underrepresented groups by 2025. JLL wants to ensure it is a place where everyone from all backgrounds and perspectives succeeds.


At JLL, we want our people to feel supported, engaged and healthy. Well-being is critical. This fuels performance and drives business results. We take care of each other. We support our employees and their mental, physical, and financial well-being with our online Well-being toolkit.
With ongoing programming – including a webinar series, tips and tricks, and e-learning content and beyond – our employees have a library of wellbeing resources at their fingertips (whether they’re in the office or working from home). Webinars include topics for Inspiring Well-Being, Stress Management, Building Resilience, Reducing Financial Risk, Inclusion and Diversity, and Flexible Working. We encourage our workforce to stay in the moment, focus on what you can control, set boundaries, take time to unplug and change your perspective.
JLL is the first corporate occupier in the world to receive a WELL Portfolio Score from The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) by applying the WELL Building Standard to its own office portfolio.
