JM Family Enterprises Ranks No. 34 on FORTUNE’s 100 Best Companies to Work For® List
Diversified automotive company JM Family Enterprises, Inc., has been ranked No. 34 on Fortune’s list of 100 Best Companies to Work For®, named for its 17th consecutive year. The ranking recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures.
JM Family has appeared on the list every year since first applying in 1999 and is the highest ranking automotive company listed. It was also recently highlighted on two “People’s Picks” lists: the 15 Great Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production and the 20 Great Workplaces in Retail.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the nation’s best workplaces for nearly two decades,” said Colin Brown, President and CEO of JM Family. “JM Family was built on the philosophy that associates are the company’s most important asset and that principle continues to be the driving force in our success. Our ranking is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of more than 4,000 associates.”
JM Family, a privately held company, is often praised for its associate-focused culture, which includes nine onsite Health & Wellness Centers for associates and their families, exceptional healthcare benefits, profit sharing and 401(k) retirement plans, programs promoting work/life balance, and opportunities to give back to the communities where the company has major business operations.
“It is no coincidence that the 100 best workplaces are also extremely profitable and successful companies,” said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Research by our firm definitively showcases that the best places to work outperform their competitors. There is an absolute ROI when companies invest in creating a high-trust workplace culture. Great workplaces have significantly less turnover and produce employees who have a vested interest in the company.”
JM Family was selected among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the 2015 list. Applicant companies opt to participate in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
Creators of the methodology behind the list, Great Place to Work® has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy their coworkers.
