2019 is only the 2nd year running of the prestigious UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women award list, so being one of the first organisations to be recognised as a Best Workplaces™ for Women is a significant accolade and achievement for justteachers.
Justteachers is a great workplace for everyone, including women- with our ethos encompassing key areas of importance including trust, fairness and wellbeing. We understand the importance of promoting gender neutrality and help build a trusted culture of collaboration and innovation where people feel valued and committed to achieving organisational goals. Our leaders are dedicated to creating a great experience for employees and our customers.
We ensure that our team maintain a healthy work-life balance by offering the following benefits:
- Reduced working hours policy throughout the school holidays for all staff;
- Opportunity to take a weekly extended wellness lunch;
- A well-structured phased return to work policy for those who are returning to work after maternity leave;
- Generous holiday allowance;
- One-to-one support, training and development opportunities throughout the company from the onset of employment, and actively provide support for those who wish to enroll on leadership courses.
Justteachers wholly believe in leadership by example- the majority of the Senior Team Leaders having worked their way up in terms of their career, throughout their time with the company.
Caroline Cafferty, Operations Director at justteachers said of the award win:
“We are delighted to be recognised as one of the Best Workplaces™ for Women in 2019.
At justteachers, women occupy the majority of our leadership roles and the entire Senior Management Team are working mothers. We believe in celebrating the diversity women can bring to an organization, in addition to supporting their professional development and work/life balance commitments. I am so proud that each and every one of them play such an important part in decision making, management and in shaping where we are heading as a business in the future.
I’m equally proud of the whole team of women, and men, that make justteachers who we are.”
Ben Gautrey, Great Place to Work® Managing Director said: “We are delighted to recognise so many great organisations in the second year of the best workplaces for women’s award list. The issues around women in the workplace, particularly parity of pay and advancement opportunities, continue to be important topics and we are proud that, with this ranking and the insights from our successful organisations, we are able to add to the agenda and continue to raise awareness of the importance of fairness around pay, recognition, training and development opportunities and work/life balance. What our Best Workplaces™ for Women clearly show is the impact these policies have on our business. The result is that they are better able to attract and retain female talent who are encouraged to develop professionally and personally."
