“Being recognized as the top company on the PEOPLE’s 50 Companies that Care list is an honor,” said Publix CEO Todd Jones. “When the first Publix store opened 90 years ago, our Founder, George Jenkins, instilled a set of values that still guide us today. Our philosophy has always been to respect the dignity of our associates, treat our customers like royalty, and give back to our communities.”
According to a press release from Publix, the list highlights the top 50 U.S. companies that have succeeded in business while demonstrating outstanding respect, care, and concern for their employees, their communities, and the environment, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In compiling the list, PEOPLE magazine partnered with Great Place to Work to analyze surveys of over 4.8 million employees on their experiences of how their workplaces have made a difference in their lives and their communities.
