Commitment to Workforce Wellbeing

The following is an excerpt from a 2017 message from the President of JTB Corp. to all JTB employees.


Commitment to Workforce Wellbeing


If the JTB Group is to continue to evolve and generate new value over the next 100 years, it is essential that we create a corporate culture that supports the recruitment and retention of talented individuals from all walks of life. We must promote teamwork, inclusion, and supportive workplace communication and help every colleague to remain active and healthy for as long as possible. To this end, we must offer greater work-life balance options and give our people the tools they need to be more successful and productive. Through these efforts, we can create the time and ‘headspace’ which are essential for creativity and business innovation.

The ultimate goal of expanding work-life balance options is to help employees maximize their health and sense of wellbeing. Healthy colleagues drive our success and growth as an organization.

In order to ensure our sustained success and growth as an organization, the JTB Group needs to monitor, identify and address workforce health/wellness challenges as an integral component of its business strategy. To demonstrate our resolve, the JTB Group hereby publicly declares its Commitment to Workforce Wellbeing.

An organization with a healthy workforce and a healthy workplace environment is an organization that employees will seek to be a part of. It is also an organization that customers and stakeholders will want to be associated with. From this day forward, the JTB Group shall make a conscious and deliberate effort at every level of our organization to promote the physical and mental wellbeing of ourselves, our immediate team members and our colleagues at large.
