CORTE MADERA, Calif. -- Drive a few minutes one way from Jaguar-Land Rover-Volvo Marin, and you'll arrive on an idyllic shoreline with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Drive a few miles the other way, and you'll find yourself among the redwoods of Mount Tamalpais.
It's a California paradise.
Jaguar-Land Rover-Volvo Marin, which does a brisk business supplying vehicles to the wealthy lovers of the great outdoors who live here, also offers regular doses of California fun to its employees, ranging from lunchtime visits by a taco truck to off-road driving excursions and spirit days on which employees wear the colors of local sports teams such as the Golden State Warriors.
Beyond those special events, the store has sought to build a culture in which great work is recognized every day and employees get enough time with their families.
That culture has resulted in the dealership being rated No. 1 among medium-sized dealerships in this year's Automotive News list of Best Dealerships To Work For. Medium-sized dealerships are defined as those with 50-99 employees.
