Doing good

Whether we’re considering everyday actions, big decisions, or future planning, we care about one thing: making a difference to people.

Though we’re financial planners, people are always our top priority. We want Jacksons to have a positive impact on each and every person we meet.

For our team, this means creating an environment in which they can thrive. It means fantastic mental health support, a leading maternity and paternity offering, and a real focus on personal growth and development. It also means working in a way that’s different, with flexible arrangements shaped by how individual team members work best. Many choose a combination of working from home and from our office (with an exciting move to a new and more sustainable hub-based workspace underway).

For Jacksons, this people-first approach is a natural win-win. When people are happy, healthy, and well supported, relationships grow, ideas flow, and everyone gives their best. We’ve seen for ourselves how this positive chain-reaction benefits our clients.

B Corp

And because we’re always keen to go further, we’re at the beginning of a whole new journey: becoming B Corp certified. B Corp is a social and environmental movement that aims to use business as a force for good; championing companies that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. Certification is a lengthy process and we’ve still got a long way to go, but for us, it’s a big step in the right direction.

Finding balance

In 2023, we transitioned to a new four-day working week; proven to increase productivity by giving teams a better work/life balance. After a six month trial, we made this permanent in February 2024.

We remain open from 8am to 6pm (which is more convenient for our clients who work 9am-5pm) from Monday to Thursday and we maintain an emergency contact on Fridays. Voicemails and client portal messages are checked throughout Friday in case an urgent response is needed.
