Shanghai, 17 January 2023 – JLL China has been successfully certified as a Top Employer for 2023 by the independent Top Employers Institute. As one of the 138 qualifying organisations in China for 2023, JLL is privileged to be the only company certified in the real estate field.

Top Employers Institute is the global authority on recognising excellence in People Practices. It helps accelerate these practices to enrich the world of work. Through the Top Employers Institute Certification Programme, participating companies can be validated, certified, and recognised as an employer of choice. Established over 30 years ago, Top Employers Institute has certified 2053 organisations in 121 countries/regions. These certified Top Employers positively impact the lives of over 9.5 million employees globally. 

JLL China proved itself to be a great place to work through a stringent two-month certification process, involving a comprehensive analysis and deep dive of the company culture, evaluating six human resources domains, including people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, diversity equity & inclusion, wellbeing and more. JLL China is especially proud to be certified in such a challenging environment and time in 2022 when Covid disrupted personal and professional norms.

Being recognized as a Top Employer exhibits JLL’s excellent HR initiatives and people practices, and showcases the company’s dedication to being a better place to work. The certification is a valuable benchmark for assessing the employment environment, and also highlights JLL’s strong commitment towards values such as quality, collaboration, and ethics & integrity within the Firm.

Bessie Lee, Chief Executive Officer, Greater China, JLL, commented: “We are very proud of this honour. This is a recognition of our undeviating commitment to investing in people, a convincing result of a comprehensive review of our talent strategy, a thorough assessment of our HR digitalisation and initiatives, and a valuable validation of our work environment, all of which demonstrate a company culture that puts our employees at the heart of everything we do. We will continuously promote a better workplace and keep investing in our staff.”
