To support the psychological safety of its employees, Jazz prioritizes mental health and well-being.

Jazz demonstrates this through offering an Employee Assistance Program to all employees, participating in the mental health initiatives, such as the ‘Not Myself Today’ campaign, and by promoting a healthy work-life balance.
