Nearly 500 JLL employees take part in volunteering for this year’s Give & Gain Day


​Members of JLL's Property & Asset Management, Planning, Valuation, Corporate Solutions and Procurement teams all took part in the national day of volunteering on Friday 15th May.

Give & Gain Day, organised by Business in the Community (BITC), is the UK's only national day of volunteering. It's a global celebration of the power and potential of employee volunteering, and since 2008 over 110,000 people in 38 countries around the world have taken part. The day is designed to make volunteering fun and accessible and to encourage workplaces to allow employees to volunteer during work time.  JLL, a longstanding supporter and member of BITC, has an on-going employee volunteering programme with active involvement from many of its UK-based teams throughout each year.

JLL employees worked on 10 projects across the country in Norwich, Manchester, Leeds, London, Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham on Friday. Work included redecoration on the Shadwell community project in East London, gardening at Wythenshawe Community Farm in Manchester and farming and gardening activities at Thornage Hall in Norwich.

Neil Worrall, Director in JLL's Property and Asset Management team, commented: "It was fantastic to see hundreds of members of the team enthusiastic about getting stuck in to helping local community projects. As a company we are placing more emphasis on our community role under the banner of our Building for Tomorrow programme. Part of this programme involves investing time and energy into community projects to make a positive difference to our local environments. Give & Gain is a great way to do this and through it we have forged close links with many local projects."

Stephen Howard, Chief Executive of Business in the Community added: "Give & Gain Day is a celebration of the power of employee volunteering and the difference it can make to both businesses and communities. Every year JLL has increased its participation in the event, making a real difference to community projects with the help that their teams of volunteers have been offering."
