JTP is an award-winning practice of international architects and planners with extensive experience of delivering successful projects for both the private and public sectors throughout the UK, Europe, China, Russia and the Middle East.

At the heart of its success is the effort and creative ability of the talented people working at the organisation. Nurturing that talent has never been as important than in the past year with managing partner Marcus Adams insisting on a weekly practice update to ensure all employees were kept up to date on both project workload and pandemic safety measures.

Managers adapted to the new home working email by instigating 9am “wake-up” calls for their teams to stay connected followed by another catch-up in the afternoon. More emphasis was put on social interaction with lighthearted snaps of lockdown life dueling with project progress images for attention.

JTP recognises that hard work and loyal service deserves reward and has introduced a “length of service” award which gives those who have stayed for 10 years five days extra paid holiday per year. It also offers flexi-leave , which allows those with one year's service to take an additional week's unpaid vacation. More than 20 people have benefited from length of service awards so far in 2021 and 11 have taken flexi-leave.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

96% of staff agreed

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team

With community engagement high on the agenda, the managing partner, Marcus Adams, has volunteered at a local food bank since April 2020. He also ensured that the £6,000 spent on the firm's Christmas party to local food banks and the housing charity Shelter. Three employees subsequently participated in a winter sleep-out to raise funds for a homeless charity.

My Company

97% of staff agreed

I feel proud to work for this organisation

JTP believes in benefits that provide real help. In response to challenges experienced by younger staff in finding a place to live, it offers an interest-free Housing Support Loan to allow them to buy or rent. A quarter of staff now have a foot on the housing ladder.

Wellbeing

77% of staff agreed

I am happy with the balance between my work and home life

During the pandemic the Studio manager carried out individual calls to 120 employees every week to check on wellbeing, with help requested ranging from home office equipment to the flexibility to work from abroad. This proved an effective strategy with JTP receiving its highest ever staff engagement score.
