JM Family Named Best Company of Parents and Diversity

JM Family Enterprises, the $14.5 billion diversified automotive company named for 18 consecutive years as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® by Fortune®, was recently ranked #12 on the Best Workplaces for Parents and #45 on Best Workplaces for Diversity lists.  

“At JM Family, providing a working environment that puts our people first is part of our DNA, so it is an honor to be recognized for practicing what we consider to be one of our core values,” said Carmen Johnson, executive vice president and general counsel, JM Family. “We have found that focusing on our associates – building an inclusive culture where everyone feels valued and respected – allows us to achieve great success, both within our organization and the community at large.”

National surveys were conducted by the global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune

The organization was one of only two companies in the state to be listed among the Best Workplaces for Parents, which is based on anonymous employee feedback, as well as benefits that help mothers and fathers participate fully in their organizations. The ranking considered the results from more than 120,000 surveys of U.S. employees across a range of industries. The winning businesses excelled in parents' assessment of their companies' fairness, camaraderie, professional opportunities and other factors essential to a rewarding career.

“We respect how hard our associates work, both on the job and at home, so we do our best to make their lives easier with on-site child care, paid maternity and paternity leave for new and adoptive parents and 24-hour access to medical services. After all, Family is in our name and a major part of who we are as an organization,” said Johnson.

The Best Workplaces for Diversity list is based on employees’ assessments of workplace fairness, opportunities for training and access to senior leadership, among other factors. By promoting environments that are great for all employees, organizations create winning workplaces, according to research Great Place to Work conducted to compile the list. The 50 companies on the 2016 Best Workplaces for Diversity list average 24 percent higher year-over-year revenue growth than other Great Place to Work-CertifiedTM workplaces that didn’t earn a spot on the ranking.

During 2016 JM Family has been featured on several Best Workplaces lists. The company was the only Florida-based organization to be featured on the 30 Best Workplaces to Retire From list, coming in at #13. Other recent accolades include a rank of #45 on the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials, #15 on the 20 Best Workplaces for Baby Boomers and #62 on the 100 Best Workplaces for Women.
