Jumar named a UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™ second year running

The 2024 UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™ was launched this morning by Great Place To Work® UK, recognising Jumar among the top 100 ranked organisations. This is the second time Jumar has been recognised on this prestigious list.

Jumar has always strived to create a workplace that prioritises its people and their wellbeing. Our inclusive and supportive company culture is central to Jumar's success. We encourage our team members to bring their whole selves to work, fostering an open and collaborative environment where everyone can thrive. This positive culture is built on the foundation of respect, trust, and teamwork.

In 2022, Jumar launched its Wellbeing Group, a dedicated initiative focused on promoting employee wellbeing using four pillars as guiding principles: Mental, Physical, Financial, and Social wellbeing. The group organises various activities and offers support to help our team members lead healthier and more balanced lives. Activities include an annual 'Wellbeing Week’, lunch and learn sessions, sharing one-minute messages on environmentally friendly hacks, and providing opportunities to work with the local community.

We also recognise the importance of mental health, and to support our team members, we have trained and continue to support a network of mental health first aiders. These individuals are available to provide guidance and support to team members when needed, ensuring that our workplace remains a safe and compassionate space.

These are just some of the reasons why employees at Jumar believe it’s a great place to work.

The UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™ rankings include organisations who have succeeded in making their employees experience high levels of wellbeing in their workplace. To compile the prestigious list, Great Place To Work culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing their holistic experiences of wellbeing at work through fundamental facets of employee wellbeing, including: work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, and financial security.  Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.

Sarah Wright, Group People Director at Jumar commented: “This recognition by Great Place to Work® UK is a testament to our unwavering commitment to our people. At Jumar, we believe that prioritising employee wellbeing is not just beneficial for our team members but is also fundamental to our success as an organisation. Being acknowledged for the second time highlights our dedication to fostering a positive, inclusive, and supportive work environment where everyone can thrive. We are incredibly proud of this achievement and remain committed to maintaining and enhancing our culture of respect, trust, and teamwork.”

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place To Work UK says: Wellbeing, engagement, and trust between employees are critical ingredients to successful workplace culture. Now in our third year of the UK's Best Workplaces for Wellbeing™ list, we’re able to showcase the leading UK organisations providing environments conducive to outstanding psychological, physical, financial and social wellbeing. It’s no secret that by ensuring employees feel genuinely trusted and cared for, they are much healthier, productive and committed to the mission and purpose of the organisation. Congratulations to Jumar for making this prestigious list!”

This award follows our recent place among the top 100 in the UK’s Best Workplaces for Development™ earlier this year.
