Publix Named a Top-Rated Workplace for Veterans by Indeed
LAKELAND, FL - Happy Veterans Day AndNowUKnow readers—have I got the article for you. In the spirit of the holiday, employment search company Indeed recently announced its Top-Rated Workplaces for Veterans in an inaugural list. Coming in at a healthy number 37 is retailer Publix, which published a press release on the achievement.
"Publix is proud to employ veterans, and as a small token of gratitude, we will offer a 10 percent discount to all veterans, active military personnel, and their families at our stores on Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11," the company announced.
According to the release, Indeed ranked companies after analyzing veterans’ reviews of their workplaces and then reviewing company workplace initiatives focused on supporting veterans.
"In 2017, there were 20.4 million veterans in the U.S., of whom 4.1 million served at any point from 2001 forward. And up to 360,000 people leave military service each year. This large labor pool has valuable skills such as leadership, agile decision making, and teamwork that can be an asset to many jobs," Indeed wrote in its announcement of the list. "This Veterans Day, we wanted to celebrate the Top-Rated Workplaces by veterans."
Other retailers that made the list are Costco at #4 and HEB at #5. Those who wish to read more about Publix’s ranking and see the full list can visit blog.indeed.com.
