JM Family Enterprises Ranks on FORTUNE's “100 Best Companies to Work For” List for Ninth Consecutive Year

January 11, 2007

Deerfield Beach, Fla. — JM Family Enterprises Inc. (JM Family) has ranked No. 41 on FORTUNE magazine's 2007 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For. JM Family is the highest-ranked company headquartered in Florida and the leading automotive company on the list. This is the ninth consecutive year the family-owned business has made the list. FORTUNE selected the company’s newly created Associates Helping Associates fund as a distinctive benefit, saying, “Toyota distributor and Lexus dealer looks out for its own: It donated $25,000 to an Associates Helping Associates fund to help employees meet emergencies and matched employee contributions dollar for dollar.”

“Having made the list for the ninth consecutive year is a tribute to our talented and dedicated associates,” said President and CEO Colin Brown. “At JM Family, we believe our associates are our most important asset — they are what give us our competitive edge. The unique culture that makes this such a special place to work is embodied by our associates.”

This is the third year that FORTUNE has subdivided the list by company size: large, medium-sized, and small, with JM Family ranked No. 17 among medium-sized companies with between 2,501 to 10,000 U.S. employees.

Since JM Family’s inception in 1968 it has maintained a world-class work/life environment that offers competitive salaries and outstanding benefits for associates and their families. JM Family offers an array of unique benefits and work/life advantages including on-site medical centers with full-time physicians, nurses, physical therapist, and part-time gynecologist; childcare facility; free prescriptions and flu shots; Toyota, Scion and Lexus discount purchase program; cafeterias open for breakfast, lunch, and offering take-home dinners; salon services with free haircuts and manicures; dry cleaning and shoe repair services; annual mammograms; fitness centers; massage therapists; indoor lap pool; 401(k) plan, profit sharing plan, retirement plan and medical plan retiree option; toll-free telephone line for communications before, during, and following a disaster or crisis; and much more.

To choose the 100 Best Companies to Work for, FORTUNE relies on two things: an evaluation of the policies and culture of each company and the opinions of the company’s own employees. Two-thirds of the total score comes from employee responses to a 57-question survey created by the Great Place to Work Institute (GPTWI) in San Francisco. Any company that is at least seven years old with more than 1,000 U.S. employees is eligible.
