BREAKING RECORDS IS the name of the game at JMC IT. Not only does the company encourage sporting excellence, but it is also celebrating 11 years as a Best Small Company. Managing director Andrew Burgess launched “Team JMC” nine years ago to encourage social, sporting and charitable events at the Manchester-based IT services and support firm. All 100 employees have taken part, including Team GB triathlete Alex Lawton and endurance cyclist Jason Miles. Last year Miles broke two world records for tandem cycling in the Channel 4 programme Speed with Guy Martin. The company enjoyed a record year in 2014, with revenues of almost £11m and profits of almost £1.1m. To reward employees, it took everyone to Dublin for a weekend. Every April there is a two-week challenge when the firm donates 75p per kilometre that everyone commutes, getting to and from work under their own steam. Giving Something Back is JMC IT's great strength, winning a top-10 positive score of 85%. It has donated £3,900 to Salford Central Foodbank in less than a year. Every three months, employees get a paid half-day for volunteering. Last year people packed food parcels and made shopping collections and deliveries for the food bank. Staff feel charitable activities are encouraged (96%). JMC IT has established itself as a recycling centre for clients' computer equipment and gets its highest-ranked score in our survey for protecting the environment (87%, a top-10 result). The average time spent with the company is 12 years — some employees have been here twice as long, which it says is “almost unheard of within the technology industry” — so people have a strong sense of job security (88%). www.jmc.co.uk

Giving Something Back

100% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

JMC has a strong culture of ensuring that staff look after their well-being. All staff are offered a health scheme that can be used to fund a range of health related treatments including physiotherapy. JMC also provide a wide range of resources and support for those that wish to take a break from the working day and improve their fitness and/or relax. Their facilities include on-site gym, circuit training sessions at lunch, two table tennis tables, a badminton court, three mountain bikes that can be used for lunchtime rides, pool table and darts board. Anyone taking part in any competitive activities can do so under the “JMC's Team JMC banner”, and receive a range of free support options including funding, a branded weatherproof gazebo, their Team JMC van, branded clothing. Getting people involved in the above has been hugely beneficial for the business and the people involved. From just letting off some steam at lunch, to developing new skills and interests, through to getting to know people within the business that you wouldn't normally meet. JMC have also uncovered some real stars amongst the team that have gone on to achieve some amazing results including one of their engineers Jason Miles, who has won many 24-hour mountain bike races and Alex Lawton who is now Team GB triathlete.pasting

My Company

97% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Staff are allocated a paid half-day every three months that they can use to “Give Something Back”. A member of staff's annual entitlement can be combined to allow them to undertake two days consecutive work if needed. JMC allow staff to suggest the causes that they would like to support rather than present themselves. This financial year they are supporting Salford Foodbank with all funds raised going to this great cause. Currently they have people using their Giving Something Back time to undertake shopping collections and deliveries, as well as packing food parcels for Foodbank visitors.
