Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE Name JM Family Enterprises One of the Best Workplaces for Women

JM Family Enterprises Inc., the $14.9 billion diversified automotive company ranked for 19 consecutive years as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® by FORTUNE®, is also now recognized as one of the country’s 100 Best Workplaces for Women.

The list considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women’s assessement of their organizations’ culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace. JM Family came in No. 49 on the list.

“It has always been a priority to create an environment where all of our associates feel like valued, respected and appreciated members of our team,” said Carmen Johnson, executive vice president of Human Resources and Legal. “We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of our associates, and therefore encourage our teams to pursue the varied opportunities for development, work-life balance programs, making a difference in our communities and unique associate services available to them.”

Research from Great Place to Work has shown that women are five times more likely to plan a long-term future with their employers when they say they’re treated as full members of the team, regardless of position. The Best Workplaces for Women also set themselves apart from competitors in other important ways: 95 percent of women at these organizations describe them as friendly, and the same share say they’re proud to tell others where they work. 

"The Best Workplaces for Women deserve recognition for crafting environments where men and women alike can bring their best selves to work each day,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.

The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. During the past year, JM Family was also recognized by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE as a Best Workplace for diversity, parents and millennials.
