Great Place to Work honored JM Family Enterprises as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production

Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have honored JM Family Enterprises as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production™. This is the company’s sixth time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at No. 2.

In 2020, JM Family completed a $100 million brand-new facility for its Toyota Vehicle Processing Center (VPC) in Commerce, Georgia. The 350,000 square-foot complex encompasses 90 acres of the company’s 300-acre site, where it employs more than 200 associates, many of whom were heavily involved in the design process.

This sleek and efficient new operating location was built on the feedback of the associates who work there, implementing new business processes to improve efficiency. In addition, the company added specific amenities to improve work life, including a Health & Wellness Center with a physician, a nurse practitioner and a registered nurse on staff, an expanded dining facility with ample outdoor seating, a fitness center and a community meeting area. Other unique amenities include a community garden where associates can grow their own herbs, produce and flowers, an onsite ¾ mile outdoor fitness trail and an approximately one-acre fishing pond. Facilities upgrades were also completed at the company’s two additional VPCs in Jacksonville, Florida.

“Throughout the pandemic, our associates in Jacksonville and Commerce have been the heartbeat of this company. They have worked tirelessly to process vehicles and to keep up with the demand of our dealer partners,” said Brent Burns, president and CEO, JM Family. “We are honored to know that they feel this is a great place to work, because we are beyond grateful for all they do to keep our motor running.”

The Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 220,000 current employees. In that survey, 90% of JM Family’s associates said it is a great place to work, compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

The Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated.

Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “In 2020 and beyond, these companies rewarded the hard and unrelenting work of their employees by creating a safe space for them to thrive in their careers and in their personal lives.”
