Rochester, New York, April 4, 2023 – Great Place To Work® and Fortune magazine have honored Wegmans as one of the 2023 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®. This is Wegmans 26th time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at #4. Earning a spot means that Wegmans has surpassed rigorous benchmarks, establishing itself as one of the best places to work in the country.
To determine the 100 Best Companies to Work For, Great Place To Work analyzed the anonymous survey responses of more than half a million employees from Great Place To Work Certified™ companies with at least 1,000 workers. Companies also submitted essays describing their efforts to offer generous and innovative support for workers, which were validated against employee survey responses.
“We continue to believe we can only be a great place to shop if we are a great place to work,” says Colleen Wegman, president and CEO of Wegmans Food Markets. “The values we share across our company are demonstrated in the way our employees care for each other, our customers, and our community. We are so grateful for everyone’s dedication to making Wegmans a special place to work and shop for all, and we celebrate this honor together.”
Making the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list is highly competitive. Survey responses reflect a comprehensive picture of the workplace experience. Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive outcomes for employees regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status, or other demographic identifier.
“It’s in times like these that the best workplaces separate themselves,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. “In a challenging economy, many companies reduce investments in their people and scale back goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion. But these companies, the 100 Best, relentlessly pursue a better work experience for every employee, and if anything, double down on the employee experience regardless of title, tenure, gender, or ethnicity. These companies know this is how you increase performance, productivity, and your innovation velocity when your firm needs it the most.”
“Fortune is pleased to have collaborated once again with Great Place To Work to recognize the 100 Best Companies to Work For,” says Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell. “We congratulate all the organizations included in this year’s ranking for creating positive work environments and value for their employees, especially during this period of economic uncertainty.”
In 2022, Wegmans also ranked as a Best Workplace for Parents, Best Workplace for Women, and was ranked #1 on the Fortune Best Workplaces in Retail™ list. In addition, they were named to the PEOPLE Companies That Care® list.
Celebration at Wegmans Stores
Customers and employees will celebrate the honor on Saturday, April 15, at 11 a.m. when mini cupcakes will be served at every Wegmans store. For customers who prefer a healthy option instead of a cupcake, Clementine tangerines will be available.
