Diversity mission: At Jones Lang LaSalle, we recognize the importance of diversity and we value it. The cornerstone of our diversity policy is respect for the broad spectrum of diversity that exists within our workforce and our customer base. It is our goal to strengthen and partner with our diverse business communities by contributing to their overall economic growth and to the expansion of our markets.

It recruits a diverse group of talented people and develops and promotes exceptional individuals from a range of backgrounds as well as 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. The same year, it received the Eli Lilly Advancing Supplier Diversity Award.
