Effectiveness. Health. Sustainability. Experience.
What is the Winning Workplace Award?
The JLL Winning Workplace Award is a prestigious award for office occupiers who develop their working environment in a progressive and innovative way. The Award is presented every two years. This year--the fifth anniversary of the award--the theme is "Workplace 2020": it’s all about a work environment that encourages effectiveness, enhances experience, and makes a positive contribution to health and sustainability. To mark the anniversary, we’re taking a look back at the previous editions and charting how the workplace has evolved over the past 10 years.
What does the JLL Winning Workplace Award offer?
With the Award, JLL is offering a platform to occupiers who use advanced workplace concepts to achieve their business goals. Every edition of the JLL Winning Workplace Award gets a whole lot of publicity. Participating in the Winning Workplace Award is thus the ideal way to bring your organization to the attention of potential employees and customers alike. On behalf of the winner of the previous edition, VGZ, Richard Helmus (Manager, Facilities & Real Estate), has this to say: "Netting the Winning Workplace Award has boosted our reputation as a cooperative health insurer and an inspiring employer who can both attract and retain talent. But it has certainly also boosted our core business, such as VGZ for Business, which is our Occupational Health and Safety Division."
Cooperation between JLL and Facto
For this anniversary edition, JLL and Facto have joined forces to attract the attention of just the right target group. The award will be presented during the annual Facto Congress. To make sure the selection process is objective, JLL has appointed a jury of five workplace experts, each with their own different perspective. This jury consists of Dennis Reisner (Head of Global Workplace Services at SurveyMonkey), Marieken Horsman (Senior Director, Facilities, at PVH Europe), Marike Tuinder (Partner at Deloitte Consulting), Hans Rietveld (Ahold Delhaize), and Richard Helmus (Manager, Facilities & Real Estate, at VGZ).
What is expected of the businesses that will be taking part?
The image below shows the Winning Workplace Award process, and the steps that make it up. On the basis of a scorecard, registrations will be according to three main themes: effectiveness, health and experience. Three organizations will then be selected as finalists and will participate in the jury visit, the assessment--which includes an online component--and the congress. All organizations that register will be invited to a Winning Workplace networking event and will be sent the Winning
Workplace Award paper so they can learn more about developments in the workplace.
What does the election process look like?
From the entries, three nominees will be determined. In an online public-voting round, votes can be cast for these organizations on the internet. In addition, after wide-ranging company visits to the organizations that have been nominated, the jury will select the final winner. Working environments are assessed based on the following criteria: effectiveness, experience, health and sustainability.
As we mentioned above, it was VGZ that came away with the JLL Winning Workplace Award in 2017. Before that, it was Vodafone in 2011, Essent in 2013, and Dimence in 2015.
