Setting the Standard: Jacobs Inclusive Culture
One of the U.K.’s leading inclusion benchmarking organizations, The Clear Company, has honored Jacobs’ inclusive culture with its “Silver Standard” status.
We’re setting the standard for inclusive cultures – the “Silver Standard” that is.
The Clear Company, one of the U.K.’s leading external benchmarking originations for inclusion and diversity, has awarded Jacobs’ inclusive culture “Silver Standard” accreditation. This honor reflects our continued focus on TogetherBeyond℠, our global inclusion and diversity strategy, and represents a significant step up from the previous “Foundation Standard” in less than nine months – a remarkable achievement in this timeframe.
Congratulating Jacobs on our award, a spokesperson for The Clear Company shared, “In achieving Silver, Jacobs has demonstrated that D&I is securely embedded at all levels of the organisation, combining visible and accountable leadership with company-wide inclusion training and a huge grassroots drive led by the 20,000+ members of their eight Jacobs Employee Networks.”
“Silver Standard is a considerable achievement and can only be achieved through a holistic approach to D&I and a commitment to working and thinking differently every day,” The Clear Company’s spokesperson added. “Businesses that do this are more able to influence authentic change, internally and within their markets and sectors.”
Jacobs Senior Vice President of People & Places Solutions Europe Donald Morrison added to the sentiment, saying, “We’re incredibly proud of the cultural shifts in Jacobs that have seen us move from ‘Foundation’ to ‘Silver’ rating in less than nine months. Central to this success has been our transparent, accountable leadership on inclusion and the rich partnership we’ve developed with leading organizations like Clear.”
“Our continued success in the U.K. depends on recruiting the best diverse talent in today’s competitive market – and we’re looking forward to improving our rating even more in 2021,” he concluded.
We look forward to improving our standard as we continue on our journey to recruit and retain the best global talent and drive innovative solutions for our business, clients and communities.
