NJBiz Selects JLL for Best Places to Work in New Jersey Award

Firm among 35 large-size companies recognized by magazine in annual ranking

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ, March 3, 2015 — JLL has been named by NJBiz as one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey. The firm’s New Jersey operation was one of 100 companies honored by the magazine, which launched the popular annual ranking of Garden State businesses in 2005.

The Best Places to Work in New Jersey survey and award program identifies, recognizes and honors the top places of employment in New Jersey that benefit the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The program is made up of 100 companies split into two groups: 65 small/medium-sized companies, with 15 to 249 employees, and 35 large-sized companies, with more than 250 employees.

“If there’s one thing that permeates every facet of JLL culture, it’s the knowledge that the firm’s employees are its most valuable resource,” said Robert Kossar, executive managing director and market director for JLL’s New Jersey operations. “The company rewards collaboration, and even structures its compensation and benefits packages to ensure that employees work together. JLL offers multiple options for how and where employees can work - both in and out of the office. More than any other company I’ve worked for, the company strives to break down internal barriers between the different lines of business.”

Qualifying firms had to have at least 15 employees in New Jersey; be a for-profit, not-for-profit or government entity; be a publicly or privately held business; and have a facility in New Jersey. Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in New Jersey. Part one consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This phase was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. Part two consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This phase was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

The overall registration and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group, which also determined the final rankings. The program is in partnership with the Employers Association of New Jersey, with Gibbons P.C., Novo Nordisk and Robert Half serving as sponsors.

NJBIZ, program sponsors and partners will honor this year’s 100 Best Places to Work and announce their official ranking during an awards reception and ceremony at the Hilton East Brunswick on Thursday, April 30, 2015.
