RICHMOND, Va., 2018-Feb-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — For 14 consecutive years, CarMax, Inc. (NYSE: KMX), the nation’s largest retailer of used cars, has been named by FORTUNE magazine as one of its 100 Best Companies to Work For®. CarMax ranks No. 34 for 2018.
“This award recognition is a direct result of the culture created by our associates,” said Bill Nash, CarMax CEO. “Their commitment to delivering an exceptional customer experience, transforming the communities around us, and caring and supporting one another is what makes CarMax a great place to work.”
The 2018 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® list is based on survey responses from more than 310,000 employees rating their workplace culture on 50-plus elements of the workplace such as fairness, camaraderie, development and trust in leadership.
“Our associates are our number one focus, and we want to have their backs during life’s moments that matter most,” said Diane Cafritz, chief human resources officer at CarMax. “That is why we are launching newly enhanced benefits this year that are a direct result of associate feedback on what benefits are most meaningful to them.”
CarMax is now offering four weeks of paid parental leave for hourly and salaried full-time associates following the birth or adoption of a child. This parental leave applies to both non-birth and birth parents.
