Wegmans Named on Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For List
ROCHESTER, NY – With over twenty-one years making Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list, Wegmans Food Markets has done it again, adding another year to its tally of wins. This year, Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine ranked Wegmans #2 for the second year in a row.
“When we see our company near the top of this list we feel pride, but also tremendous gratitude for our people who make Wegmans a special place to work and shop for all. Customers often say how much they appreciate our employees for making Wegmans such a happy place. We thank each of our employees for this honor and celebrate with them and our customers,” said President and CEO Colleen Wegman, who is the fourth generation of her family to lead the century-old company, in a press release.
Fortune's list is based on survey responses from more than 310,000 employees rating their workplace culture on over fifty workplace elements. According to the Great Place to Work®, the 2018 winners set themselves apart from other companies through high-trust cultures, and continuously outperform the stock market, beat industry rivals in talent retention, and demonstrate higher levels of productivity than peers.
“We are all a family. From old to young, we help each other out whenever it’s needed. I enjoy coming to work because I love my job and I love the people I work with. Wegmans isn’t just my place of employment. It’s my second home,” said one of Wegmans 50,000 employees, according to Fortune.
