Enterprise Holdings Inc. has recognized 21 of its regional subsidiaries with the annual Jack Taylor Founding Values Award.

“This competition, named after my father, challenges senior managers and their teams to reach new levels of corporate citizenship and inspires them to carry on a legacy of exceptional service year after year,” said Jo Ann Taylor Kindle, president of the Enterprise Holdings Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Enterprise Holdings. “I can think of no better way to honor my father’s memory than to celebrate those who exemplify his Founding Values.”

These independent regional subsidiaries employ more than 97,000 worldwide. They not only work with local vendors and small businesses, but they also make key operational decisions at the grassroots level, with a strong entrepreneurial focus as well as a clear sense of local accountability and autonomy, according to Enterprise.

Every year, all of Enterprise Holdings’ subsidiaries submit entries that outline their respective goals, action plans, and results around the six points of Enterprise’s Cultural Compass, a planning and goal-setting tool that helps managers fully integrate best practices into the way they run their day-to-day business.

The following Enterprise Holdings regional subsidiaries received the Founding Values Award in 2016: Central Canada, Dallas, Hartford, Conn., Kansas City, mid-Pennsylvania, New York, South Texas, Southeast England, New York, Southwest Florida, Hawaii, Orlando, Tennessee, Houston, Philadelphia, Upstate New York, Indiana, Pittsburgh, Utah/S. Idaho, Jacksonville, South Florida, and West Virginia.

The Jack Taylor Founding Values Award, which began in 2003, honors top regional subsidiaries for their commitment to integrating the company’s core values into their daily operations. That means not only achieving operational excellence during the fiscal year, but also focusing on key priority areas such as philanthropy, diversity, and business ethics.

The Enterprise Holdings Foundation then provides each winning subsidiary a $20,000 grant that can be awarded to nonprofit organizations in its local community, according to the company.
