Publix Recognized as one of FORTUNE’s 100 Best Companies to Work For

LAKELAND, Fla., US, 2014-1-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — For the 17th consecutive year, Publix has been honored as one of FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.” Publix was ranked No. 75 on this year’s list — up from No. 77 last year — and was one of only 13 companies to have made the list every year since its inception in 1998.

“We are often asked what makes Publix a great place to work,” said Publix CEO Ed Crenshaw. “I’m proud to share that our people make the difference; their dedication to our customers, communities, our company and each other. Being recognized for 17 consecutive years is a testament to our strong company culture and diverse work environment.”

Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on a survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about the management’s credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The remaining third is based on a company’s responses to the Culture Audit questionnaire, which asks detailed questions about pay and benefits programs, and open-ended questions about hiring, communication and diversity. More information about the survey and how companies were ranked can be found at FORTUNE’s website, www.fortune.com.
