Just believe in great things and rely on great people to lead the way. They work towards helping customers achieve a better later life and also want to make a difference to the lives of their employees.

Two-way communication is at the heart of how Just engage with their employees. In addition to the annual Best Companies survey, they also conduct regular pulse surveys following business-wide town halls hosted by their CEO, David Richardson. Colleagues receive regular ‘Just Connected’ emails which offer glimpses into people's lives from how they were coping with the challenges of home schooling and structuring their work days to their views on Black Lives Matter and joining the firm during the pandemic. So far, staff have shared more than 100 personal stories with their colleagues.

The organisation want their employees to feel supported and inspired, whatever their role. Their wellbeing initiatives focus on mental, physical, financial and social wellbeing. This includes sessions on resilience and mental health, access to the Headspace App, having mental health first aiders throughout the business, and encouraging open and honest conversations. They also aim to create a culture where employees have the confidence to bring their whole self to work.

Just supports development and progression of all employees in a number of ways, including in-role development, coaching, mentoring and face-to-face training programmes. The company also provides LinkedIn Learning membership to all employees.  

Just supports the wider community too, fundraising for organisations including its corporate charity Re-engage, which supports older people living alone. Activities included the Just World Office Tour which involved employees virtually covering the 16,236 miles from its Belfast office to its Cape Town office via London, Reigate and Tunbridge Wells and back again as many times as possible.

“We’re delighted to have secured two stars for outstanding levels of colleague engagement, with our highest score since participating in the survey. Throughout 2020 we put the wellbeing of our people at the heart of our decision making, with colleagues going the extra mile to be there for our customers. The way our people have adapted, supported one another and shared their personal stories, both of work and home challenges during the pandemic, has been inspirational.”
