At JLS, diversity and inclusion are important values, and mean creating a culture in which people of different backgrounds and points of view are valued and integral to how it collaborates and delivers its best work to clients. It fosters an environment that values the richness of differences. It recruits a diverse group of talented people and develops and promotes exceptional individuals from a range of backgrounds and embraces the varied experiences of all employees. Women make up 33% of its global workforce. Additionally, JLS employees represent a vast spectrum of cultures, backgrounds and ethnicities. Its diversity committee is responsible for the development/ management of the supplier diversity initiative, and establishes and monitors corporate minority, women and disabled veteran business enterprises.  In 2009, JLS launched the inaugural corporate solutions leadership rotation program, an 18-month program where three new employees, all recent MBAs, completed six-month assignments in facility management, transaction management and project and development services.
