Why You Want to Work There
Top 10 ranking: No. 3 for training Promising ideas find a place to grow at this Deerfield Beach, Fla.-based automotive company. The company runs a fully-funded research and development program, and IT employees meet regularly to brainstorm new technology solutions for business initiatives. Promising ideas are funded and developed into pilot projects. One recent example of an initiative conceived and piloted by IT employees in the R&D program is the mobile messaging platform developed to help dealers with various marketing programs. Dealers have reported that the platform has yielded a return on investment in excess of 1,000%. Caring for employees: Six on-site health and wellness centers, staffed by physicians, nurses, dieticians and a physical therapist, provide free pharmaceutical services, including prescription medications, management of chronic medical conditions, physicals, stress tests, urgent care, full lab work, electrocardiograms and preventative vaccines for employees and their families. JM Family offers employees, their immediate family members and all retirees after-hours care through a partnership with Solantic Urgent Care facilities. To help employees deal with the recent economic downturn, a work/life balance team organized stress management and change adoption seminars. The company's cafeterias offer nutritional entrees known as Y.E.S! meals (short for "You're Eating Smart"). Employees who choose Y.E.S! meals Monday through Thursday eat free on Fridays. On-the-go learning: The company loans Kindle or Nook e-readers to IT employees so they can download technical manuals and management books for convenient learning.
