JMC ensured that the deployment of our new system was a very positive experience.
JMC Makes The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For List for the 8th Time
JMC has been named 23rd Best Small Company to Work For in the prestigious Sunday Times list. 2012 marks the eighth year Manchester IT partner JMC, which employs 88 people at its Agecroft headquarters, has appeared in the coveted best employee list.
This year, JMC competed against 827 entrant organisations from across the UK (up from 567 in 2011) to achieve its top 30 position – and it was the only Manchester company to sit so highly in the ranking.
Each year, more and more companies vie for a position on the Sunday Times Top 100 list due to its respected and revered status, making it harder to achieve a ranking.
Andrew Burgess, managing director, comments:
What an exciting start to the year for JMC. Not only have we won a significant amount of new business, including some large CRM opportunities and support contracts, we are thrilled to also receive the Sunday Times recognition for an engaged and happy workforce.
We invest heavily in ensuring our staff members have a healthy work-life balance. We encourage staff to have fun and develop closer relationships with their colleagues through sports competitions, fundraising and social events. Our employees stay with us on average for over 10 years and our staff turnover is only three per cent, so we know we have something to be proud of.
JMC was also awarded the highest ‘three star’ rating by Best Companies in January, one of only a small number of organisations to receive this status nationwide.
