Jacobs Awarded 2021 Healthiest Employers®

Jacobs received its first Healthiest Employers® Awards given to four of our Jacobs offices! Each year, the Healthiest Employers Award program honors the best and brightest in workplace wellness, shining a spotlight on the healthiest employers.

At Jacobs, the well-being, health and safety of our people is fundamental to our success. Our employees are supported and empowered to bring their whole selves to work through our Culture of Caring and programs such as BeyondZero ® – our approach to the health, safety and security of our people, the protection of the environment and the resilience of Jacobs; PlanBeyond – our approach to sustainability; and TogetherBeyond – our approach to living inclusion every day and enabling diversity and equality globally.

Our commitment to valuing our employees’ health and safety recently earned us our first Healthiest Employers® Awards in the Bay Area, Texas, Southern California and Virginia. In the Extra-Large category of companies, Jacobs was up against top health providers, medical companies and prestigious universities, to name a few.

Our leadership and employee networks continue to advocate for better outcomes and opportunities for employees from across the globe as part of our commitment to the business objectives laid out in our refreshed PlanBeyond sustainability strategy.

“It is inspiring to see the passion and compassion Jacobs employees have shown to not only improve their own wellbeing, but also to encourage colleagues to make their own physical, emotional, financial, and social health a priority," says Jacobs Vice President, Global Total Rewards Doug Jones. "These awards are a validation of how much we value our Culture of Caring, while recognizing the great strides and dedication of the global team to support it.”

Since 2009, Healthiest Employers has been the leading recognition program for employee wellness. Healthiest Employers is a community of leaders dedicated to cultivating a more proactive approach to employee health benefits and wellbeing. The Healthiest Employers survey is scored and powered by Springbuk, a health intelligence platform that simplifies data-driven decision-making with an intuitive user experience, predictive modeling, and curated action steps.

Over the past year and a half, it’s more apparent than ever that when it comes to employees’ overall well-being, employers have an incredible opportunity to offer benefits that fit an employee’s unique needs – regardless of where they are in their health journey. In the Healthiest Employers award program, employers of all industries and sizes complete an online wellness assessment. Companies are assessed on a broad spectrum of wellness and worksite health initiatives, spanning cultural and leadership support to technological prowess to programmatic effectiveness.

Jacobs’ Healthiest Employers success reflects similar progress being made with other key benchmarking organizations in support of employee wellbeing. As part of the The Valuable 500, we’re part of the world’s biggest community for inclusion. We were recently recognized in Forbes’ Best Employers for Diversity 2021, and for three years in a row we’ve received a top score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI).

Our leadership and employee networks continue to advocate for better outcomes and opportunities for employees from across the globe as part of our commitment to the business objectives laid out in our refreshed PlanBeyond sustainability strategy.
