Fun factor Surprise cookouts happen during the summer. Leadership also often surprises team members by taking them out to lunch or dinner or giving them a free day off to recognize hard work.

Community service The company assisted with two "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" projects, donating products and labor. JES sponsored Volunteer Hampton Roads' Hot Latin Nights, funding a scholarship for Virginia Military Institute students and sponsoring children's T-ball, baseball and volleyball teams so they can buy uniforms and equipment.

Other reasons it's a best place to work Each year JES takes the opportunity to "thank" servicemen and women by sponsoring a needy family over the holidays, sponsoring the military teams at the Annual 54-mile Wilderness Challenge and adopting deployed Navy ships by sending food, games, videos, music and other comforts.

"JES Foundation Repair is an incredible place to work," said Corey Portalatin-Berrien, Internet content manager. "We have a dedicated and passionate team. This is apparent in our quality of work, teamwork and strong sense of camaraderie. All of this stems from leadership who foster a team-focused environment, generously acknowledge and praise accomplishments and hard work, and who genuinely care about every member of the team."nib
