Jacobs has been certified as a Carer Confident Active Employer by Carers UK.
The award recognizes the company’s efforts to build a positive and inclusive workplace for all staff, including the growing numbers who are, or will become carers.
This is an excellent achievement by our ACE (Access, Connect, Empower) employee network, which led the way in putting key support measures in place. ACE champions accessibility, community and opportunity for caregivers and employees with disabilities. The network provides information, resources and networking, runs awareness events and advocates for positive change.
Jacobs received a high assessment score with particularly positive feedback for flexible working and leave policies; promoting an open, inclusive and flexible workplace culture; and practical help for employees to balance work and caring commitments.
