PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Mint Eco Car Wash and Detailing Center reported in a press release the company was named a 2023 Top Workplaces in South Florida by The Sun Sentinel.
The daily newspaper’s annual South Florida Top Workplaces award is given to companies that create a positive and supportive workplace culture.
The award is based solely on anonymous employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by technology partner Energage LLC.
Mint Eco was acknowledged for its commitment to employee development, recognition and engagement.
“We are proud to have been named a Top Workplace by the Sun Sentinel,” said Geoff Jervis, Mint Eco Car Wash CEO. “We believe that our most valuable advantage is organizational health and the positive workplace that it creates. This award is an important validation that our critical employee relationship is strong and healthy.”
Mint Eco prides itself on being a “culture-first” organization, according to the release.
One of Mint Eco’s primary cultural principles is the employee relationship, chosen because the typical friction between employees and employers is unhealthy.
“Our mission statement says: ‘We exist to make people happy.’ That starts by having happy employees,” said Jervis. “While other carwashes are providing a service, we endeavor to provide not only the same or better service, but also an experience. This experience is delivered in large part by our employees.”
Mint Eco’s leadership team is dedicated to creating a positive and supportive culture that encourages teamwork, recognition, collaboration and upward mobility.
For example, Mint Eco has developed a program called, Managers In Training Program (or “MINT” Program for short), which allows individuals to enter the company at any level and actively work toward becoming a site manager, making upwards of $125,000+ per year.
The company also offers free English classes for employees, as well as other training resources to assist team members in acquiring the skills necessary to become a manager within the organization.
“Our goal is not only to develop our employees to be successful here at Mint, but to help support their long-term development no matter where that might take them in the future,” shared Jervis. “We are grateful to our team for their hard work and dedication, and we look forward to continuing to support them as we expand throughout South Florida.”
