RICHMOND, Va., 2016-Mar-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — CarMax (NYSE: KMX) and its auto finance division, CarMax Auto Finance, have been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal Constitution and ranked 5th of Atlanta’s top 25 large companies. More than 1,400 companies in the Atlanta area applied for this award and 150 were recognized.

“Being named one of Atlanta’s Top Workplaces is a wonderful achievement for CarMaxand CarMax Auto Finance,” said Jon Daniels, senior vice president of operations at CarMax Auto Finance (CAF). “This award is a credit to the thousands of associates that together have built a culture of integrity, teamwork and transparency we believe is second to none.”

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection.

CarMax has nine stores in Georgia, and the Atlanta metro area is home to seven of them as well as to CAF, which has been in operation since 1993 and offers competitive financing solely to CarMax customers. Industry sources have ranked CAF as the country’s 8th largest used auto finance company and 14th largest auto finance company overall, based on market share. CarMax has more than 1,650 associates working in theAtlanta area, including 655 that are located at CAF.

“Behind every CarMax stress-free customer experience is a dedicated, hard-working team of associates,” said Kevin Cox, regional vice president, general manager of theAtlanta region. “We place a strong focus on providing developmental opportunities for everyone in the company, and on taking care of our associates by offering a healthy work-life balance and excellent benefits.”

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

CarMax continues to grow and plans to open between 13 and 16 stores each year for the next two years. The company is currently hiring for more than 1,600 positions across the country including 64 positions in Atlanta store locations and 36 positions at CarMax Auto Finance.
