Like a growing number of organizations, Richmond, Va.-based CarMax includes employees, their domestic partners and their families in its health plan. But the new- and used-car retailer doesn’t stop there.

Domestic partners and their families also take advantage of CarMax associate discounts on cars, auto insurance, parts and service.

“With every decision we make, every program we look at and every plan we design, we consider how it will impact our associates,” says Benefits Manager Janet Bruington. “We consider if it’s the right thing to do.”

CarMax’s health policy covers domestic partners and their families for medical, dental and vision expenses. And domestic partners count as family when it comes to relocation assistance, the employee assistance program and extended bereavement leave.       

“It really supports our culture,” Bruington says. “We want to take care of our associates and their families and … make them feel like we care about them.”
