Wegmans gets 2nd spot on Fortune's '100 Best Companies to Work For'

Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.

The company came in at No. 66 for 2018, moving up 21 spots from past year.

Sheetz, the family-owned convenience store chain with over 565 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic, has been named among Fortune's annual listing of "100 Best Companies to Work For". "Staffers say "fulfilling" work gives them a "sense of objective, ' thanks to Wegmans" mission of 'helping people live healthier, better lives through food.' The civic spirit helps. too: The chain reclaims millions of pounds of food every year to feed the hungry".

The "100 Best Companies to Work For®" is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. "Kitchens, corporate offices, along with our truck drivers and maintenance teams", company President/CEO Joe Sheetz said in a release.

Sheetz announced a plan a year ago to hire 3,400 employees, in addition to raising $150,000 for hurricane relief efforts.


The list is developed through analysis of anonymous employee responses to more than 50 survey questions along with evaluations of company programs and practices measured through a culture audit assessment. "We're very proud that for nine years FORTUNE has recognized Baker Donelson's culture of transparency, inclusiveness and respect for the contributions that every member of the Firm makes in serving our clients".

The store now also offers ordering through Amazon Alexa.

Wegmans has earned a spot on the top places to work for the 21st straight year. "In the face of competition, change, and financial constraints, they consistently prioritize building the trust, pride, and camaraderie that fuels business performance".

The FORTUNE "100 Best Companies to Work For®" list and related stories are now and will be featured in the March 1 issue of FORTUNE magazine. "And they're doing it at scale for everyone, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization".
