Family is at the center of the corporate culture at Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), and the company works to ensure that employees can focus on their own families when they need to. As part of this, the company created its Employee Crisis Assistance Fund. The fund offers hardship assistance to colleagues facing unforeseen obstacles, and is made up of employee donations, as well as a 100 percent match by JGR. On the other side of the coin, when the JGR family has reason to celebrate, it does. After big race wins, the company enjoys a victory lunch and a pennant-hanging ceremony. Wellness is another important part of life as a JGR employee. Staff members can earn wellness credit for activities, and stay focused on health-related topics through the company’s quarterly wellness newsletter.
“When a company provides an environment that is conducive to each employee’s well-being and promotes a culture that supports each employee, … it creates a formula for a great corporate culture.”
