www.jgmsinc.com

Location: Grand Junction

Rank: 4 in small company category

The culture: JGMS is an organization built on people and four principles: Stewardship. Leadership. Integrity. Commitment.

Perks: JGMS provides a year-end bonus to each part- and full-time employee, based on company profits. Also available: a company-paid Employee Stock Ownership Plan and a $1,000 annual professional development allowance for seminars, university classes, and/or updating certification requirements and professional association memberships.

Giving back: JGMS is a direct contributor to the Riverside Education Center in Grand Junction, which provides academic, social and general mentoring to arguably the most financially impacted young people in the region. Employees also tutor the students. The company is a longtime supporter of the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve, which works with returning troops to provide employment assistance.

The inside scoop: “An employee made a significant error, costing the company over $20,000 in a week to correct. On the verge of being terminated, the management team opted to place the employee on a performance improvement plan with targeted behavior goals. The PIP was successfully completed, the employee was retained, the mistake has not been replicated, and the employee’s performance is so much better that he is being considered for additional responsibilities.”
