DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Diversified automotive company JM Family
Enterprises, Inc. (JM Family) is No. 16 on FORTUNE magazine's list ofthe “100 Best Companies to Work For” in
America, up 12 spots from 2010. This is JM Family’s 13th consecutive year on the list, and it continues to be the
highest ranked company headquartered in Florida.

FORTUNE applauded the company for reinstating benefits that had been suspended to cope with the economic
downturn, and highlighted JM Family’s seven onsite Health & Wellness Centers with its staff of doctors, nurses and
physical therapists.

“We are honored to again be among the best companies to work for in the nation,” said JM Family President and
CEO Colin Brown. “I believe the culture created by our late founder Jim Moran and the dedication of our associates
sets us apart as a workplace of choice. Mr. Moran built this company on the philosophy that our associates are our
most important asset. They work hard every day to drive our success and we couldn’t do it without them.” 

JM Family’s previous ranking was No. 28 and this year marks the second highest position in company history. It has
been included every year since first applying in 1999. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on responses to an
anonymous survey sent to associates, and the remainder is determined by a thorough evaluation of the organization’s
overall culture. This is the seventh year that FORTUNE has subdivided the list by size: large, medium and small –
with JM Family ranked No. 5 among medium-sized companies with between 2,500 and 10,000 U.S. employees.
The company has 3,800 associates in North America.

JM Family is a privately-held company often recognized for its world-class work environment that emphasizes
work/life balance, outstanding benefits with a focus on health and wellness, and giving back to the communities
where its associates live and work.

The full list and related stories will appear in the February 7 issue of FORTUNE, available on newsstands on
January 24, and now at fortune.com/bestcompanies.


To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to
conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Three hundred eleven companies participated in
this year's survey. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the Institute's Trust Index survey,
which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their
attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third of the scoring is based on
the company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit
programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition
programs and diversity efforts. Any company that is at least seven years old with more than 1,000 U.S. employees is
eligible. The deadline for applying for next year's list is June 15, 2011. For an online nomination form, go to
