Whether it’s the budget-conscious traveler looking for a car to take the scenic route to their destination or the frenzied business traveler on his or her way to an important seminar, Enterprise Holdings has every vehicle for every need. With three car rental brands under its umbrella, Enterprise Holdings owns Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car. The brands, through their regional subsidiaries, operate fully staffed locations throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean. Founded in 1957 by Jack Taylor, Enterprise Holdings began with only a seven car fleet and one employee, and is still owned by the Taylor family today.
Jack Taylor didn’t talk about founding values when he started up his business back in 1957 — he and his team just lived them. They set the example through a personal commitment to the company and its customers. Those values have served as the foundation for Enterprise’s growth and success for more than five decades. And today, this simple, yet powerful set of beliefs is more critical than ever to its continued success. It drives the company, and it’s how Enterprise employees hold them accountable every day.
Alamo Rent A Car focuses on travelers with a budget, looking for the biggest bang for their buck. Alamo brings unique value to the car rental market, and is the Official Car of the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts. Alamo also was given the World’s Best Award as one of the top three car rental companies by Travel + Leisure magazine.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car is considered not only one of the most affordable car rental brands in the market, but also is recognized for its outstanding customer service, including at-home customer pickup. Other transportation services marketed under the Enterprise brand name include not only Car Sales, Truck Rental, Car Share, Rideshare, Zimride, Exotic Car Collection, Motorcycle Rental and Flex-E-Rent. Enterprise has won the Top Ranking in the J.D. Power 2015 Rental Car Satisfaction Survey, TripAdvisor’s 2015 U.S. Travelers’ Choice Awards, 2015 Best Daily Car Rental Company by BusinessCar Magazine, the 2015 Gold Magellan Award for Exotic Car Collection from Travel Weekly, and was voted the Most Popular Employer in The Guardian UK’s 300 Most Popular Employers List for 2015. In addition, the brand is an official partner of the NCAA, NHL, and NHLPA.
National Car Rental is a pioneer in the car rental industry, introducing the first frequent rental program, the “Emerald Club.” The Emerald Aisle locations allow Emerald Club members to bypass the counter and choose their vehicles directly. National continues to innovate with its free mobile app and Drop & Go service. In addition. National is the Official Partner and Rental Car of the PGA of America, and the Official Rental Car Partner of four Major League Baseball teams, including: the Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels, New York Mets, and the St. Louis Cardinals.
Enterprise works hard to meet goals for growth and success, but they work just as hard to keep their workplace enjoyable. Employees are known for their enthusiasm, high energy, healthy competitive drive, and team spirit. As the company continues to grow, Enterprise understands it can best fuel its collective success with a workforce that is upbeat, motivated, and highly committed to each others’ success.
For more than half a century, Enterprise has been committed to being an engaged corporate citizen that makes a real difference in the communities where its employees they live and work. The company’s foundation has contributed more than $200 million to thousands of local non-profits focused on community improvement, education, and environmental stewardship. And, each year Enterprise’s employees contribute their time and skills to thousands of national and local organizations in the areas they serve.
Through the Enterprise Holdings Foundation, the company donated $27.5 million in FY2015. Eighty-six percent of the grants made by the foundation fulfilled requests by employees to help community causes they personally champion and actively support.
The Enterprise Holdings Foundation gives back and strengthens, through charitable support, the thousands of communities where its employees and our customers work and live.
Enterprise endorses and underwrites a variety of initiatives and causes throughout the markets where the company operates in support of four key focus areas:
- Assisting many local causes by providing a 50 percent match of employees’ contributions to United Way campaigns throughout these communities.
- Providing financial resources to worthwhile nonprofit initiatives that are actively supported by employees, their spouses, and loyal customers.
- Striving to provide more sizable special grants to nonprofit groups or causes of significant strategic or social importance to the company and their employees.
- Supporting relief projects or causes the company deems important as they arise, such as natural disasters that affect customers and employees.
Thanks to the generosity of Enterprise’s employees, each year the company holds one of the largest United Way corporate campaigns in North America.
Enterprise’s giving flows from the belief that they owe their success to the communities they serve, and must support their good causes in return.
