We are passionate about attracting, retaining and developing the very best talent, while also supporting inclusion and diversity throughout the business.
We believe that the value of our people lies in their continued development, and we are committed to ensuring that all our colleagues are qualified and equipped to grow and expand their knowledge.
The Jaguar Land Rover Learning Academy offers lifelong education support to all our employees, but for many the journey begins even earlier.
Employee Learning Scheme
We recognise that the biggest influence on anyone's personal development comes from within, and we therefore encourage our colleagues to be daring and bold in maximising their potential.
The aim of the Employee Learning Scheme is to promote lifelong learning for all employees, giving them the opportunity to acquire new skills and work on personal development in their own time. The scheme is comprehensive and diverse, including everything from language and computer courses, cookery and first aid, to driving lessons, painting, sports, DIY Skills, and much more.
Supporting the Armed Forces
Since signing the Armed Forces Covenant in 2014, Jaguar Land Rover has found employment for over 1,000 service leavers and veterans globally, and we remain committed to recruiting former members of the armed forces.
We joined the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme in 2015, with representation as the lead employer in the Wales & West Midlands Gold Alumni Association (GAA). We are also a member of the national GAA Steering Group, and a proud partner of the inspirational Invictus Games.
The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured or sick armed service personnel. These unconquered heroes have overcome incredible adversity to compete in this global event. Following the inaugural Invictus Games, Land Rover has been a Presenting Partner for the international sporting event ever since. Seeing the positive impact sport has had on the lives of the competitors, we are now looking to the future to create a lasting legacy.
Diversity and inclusion
Thanks to our global footprint, diversity is one of our inherent strengths, and we are proud to champion this across our business.
We run a number of initiatives to support and promote our employees and to help foster an inclusive working culture.
In early 2019, we launched our wellbeing strategy within the business. This strategy takes a biopsychosocial approach to wellbeing, based on the definition outlined by the World Health Organisation. To simplify this for employees and make it more accessible, we describe this as three pillars: Body, Mind, and Life. We divide our activity into Well – the proactive and preventative elements, and Unwell – the treatment and rehabilitation element.
Under all three pillars, we are supporting and encouraging employees to understand their current state of health through ‘health MOTs’. We have also launched mental health awareness training for managers, mental health awareness e-learning for all employees, mindfulness e-learning and financial wellbeing health checks, while also partnering with Public Health England on the Every Mind Matters Campaign, delivering health events at numerous sites, and initiating a network of wellbeing champions.
