Jola won the Diversity in the Workforce Award at the Comms Business Awards held virtually on Tuesday 19th January 2020.
“We were thrilled to win this award as we started Jola from nothing and so we had the opportunity to drive and encourage diversity from the outset. We immediately adopted flexible working, part-time hours and working from home policies. We added employee benefits like Life Insurance, Perkbox and Vitality healthcare and introduced new recruitment and training initiatives. These measures helped us to recruit and develop a diverse workforce, with a wide range of skills and experiences. Our people have helped us to become the fastest growing telecommunications company in the UK. We are passionate about attracting talent and bringing new people into the Channel. We look for apprentices with a desire to learn and develop, and we train them from the ground up.” Cherie Howlett, CMO, Jola.
