Jumar named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ 2024

Jumar is proud to announce that we have been named among the top 100 in the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™. 

New for this year, the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List recognises companies making employee development a key part of company culture. These workplaces offer employees the chance to better themselves, to learn new skills, and to progress within the organisation. Jumar understands that development is not one-size fits all, and we actively support every single employee to undertake their own tailored journey of growth. Because of this, our people are fuelled by a sense of purpose, feel valued, and give their best to the organisation.

Our inclusion on this exclusive list officially acknowledges our commitment to development, innovation and employee growth. At Jumar, we firmly believe that investing in our people is key to our success. Over the past 18 months we have introduced numerous new initiatives to solidify our commitment to employee development including creating a comprehensive career framework which is accessible to all our team, so everyone knows what will be required for them to reach the next level. We support team members who express interest in other areas of the business by arranging shadowing or secondment opportunities, and we have a generous training budget and a variety of technical and softer skills courses on offer that can be tailored to the needs of the employee and fit in with their progression plan. 

To compile the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List, Great Place to Work® reviewed our culture, benefits, approach to leadership and development, alongside anonymous responses from our employees. They then used these data insights to benchmark our company's employee value proposition against the culture our employees actual experience. Only the businesses who achieve the highest scores after evaluation receive Best Workplaces™ status.

From our anonymous employee feedback, we can see that overall our team highly commends our dedication to ongoing learning, individual growth, and the culture of knowledge exchange across our business. In our latest survey, 82% of the team felt that they had been offered training and other ways to develop professionally, and 93% of the team agreed that they are given the best resources and support to do well. 

Sarah Wright, Group People Director at Jumar said: “Our inclusion in the UK's Best Workplaces for Development List is a testament to our commitment to our employees' growth and development. We strive to create an environment where employees are not only encouraged to excel but are provided with the resources and support they need to reach their full potential. Whether it's through training programs, or opportunities for advancement, we are dedicated to helping our team members thrive both personally and professionally. We are incredibly proud of this achievement and remain dedicated to creating an environment where our team members can flourish.

Employee training and development isn’t just about teaching employees to do their jobs. It’s about showing employees they are valued and that there is a path of progression available. When employees don’t see opportunity, they don’t bring their best selves to work and productivity and retention will be adversely impacted,” said Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work® UK

Congratulations to Jumar for being part of our 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces for Development List."

This award is our fourth from Great Place To Work over the past 18 months as we also featured in the UK’s Best Workplaces™ 2023, UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™ 2023, and UK’s Best Workplaces in Tech™ 2023. 

We’re so proud of this achievement and look forward to using the valuable insights Great Place To Work has provided us with to build on our culture and employee satisfaction.
