Merchants Fleet Management is accomplishing its goal of building and maintaining a fulfilling and rewarding corporate culture as the company experiences double-digit growth, the fleet management company announced.
Headquartered in New Hampshire since 1962, Merchants has grown into a national organization currently employing more than 300 people, a 33% increase over the last 24 months. The company provides leases and services for more than 35,000 business and government vehicles across the U.S.
Throughout its expansion, the company's leadership made employee satisfaction a priority and has seen the benefits of those efforts in attracting new talent, achieving a 90% employee retention rate, and receiving numerous business awards.
Merchants Fleet Management is committed to a corporate culture that fosters community involvement, investment, volunteerism, and support for its employees. Significant employee benefits include professional development and support programs, wellness initiatives, and perks such as free breakfasts and snacks, discounted event tickets, free car washes and discounts on vehicle maintenance and purchases.
The company provides a free training program and tuition reimbursement for career advancement, and employees facing hardships may receive up to $1,500 through Merchant's Helping Hands program. Its ongoing investment in making Merchants a great place to work has garnered awards and recognition including:
- Great Place to Work Accreditation (June of 2016)
- Best Companies to Work For (Business NH 2015 and 2016)
- CEO Roundtable on Cancer (Annual Accreditation since 2013)
"Our values guide our dedication to our employees and our customers," said Glen Villano, CEO. "We go out of our way to help our employees thrive in their positions and grow in their careers. Our success proves that a supportive corporate culture benefits everyone."
The efforts have paid off as Merchants continues to grow. Last year, in an independent survey, more than 90 percent of Merchants Fleet Management employees reported they feel supported and challenged and that the company truly cares about them.
