Our jt family has spoken!
Our bespoke justteachers Wellness Programme is just one of the reasons why our teams love working for justteachers, even during a crisis.
Despite an incredibly challenging year for businesses the world over, we were able to sustain our award-winning culture, ultimately achieving the ranking of #42 on the 2021 UK’s Best Workplaces™ list (medium category) published by Great Place to Work® UK on 29th April.
Justteachers is among the 183 UK-based organisations recognised by its employees as an organisation that promotes a healthy workplace culture through trust, pride and camaraderie during the Covid-19 pandemic.
It is the third successive year that we have received this renowned accolade.
Company-wide 2021 employee survey responses recognised that justteachers actively encourage and promote a healthy work-life balance, and also have a trusting, friendly and welcoming culture.
Caroline Cafferty, our MD at justteachers commented:
“We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised once again by Great Place to Work® as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™, particularly during a year which has required a great deal of resilience and self-regulation from all our staff. Maintaining a healthy balance between work life and personal life has never been more important to justteachers and throughout the last year, the Senior Leadership Team have gone to great lengths to ensure employee wellbeing and maintain transparency in communications across our offices.
Each and every team member, whilst on furlough or home working, were in regular contact with their team mates and their contributions were vital to ensure we all thrived both throughout the pandemic and upon return to the offices. Achieving this accolade truly is a reflection of jt maintaining our core values and our ‘jt family spirit’."
Understanding the perspective of employees is key to building a successful workplace environment. To determine an organisation’s ranking, Great Place to Work® administers their comprehensive employee survey which represents 3/4 of an organisation’s final score. The remaining quarter of the score comes from the Culture Audit® -a business-driven questionnaire that uncovers and evaluates the organisation's HR and leadership practices, policies and culture.
More information on the award is available on the Great Place to Work® website.
