MILWAUKEE, Wis., 2015-9-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Good Jobs™, a turnkey employment branding solution, announced it has certified Roundy’s, Inc. as a Good Jobs Company awarding Culture Badges to Roundy’s Corporate as well as their grocer brands including Pick ‘n Save, Copps, Metro Market and Mariano’s. Roundy’s is a leading grocer in the Midwest with more than 150 retail grocery locations.
“The Good Jobs provides companies with a simple way to quantify and communicate their culture to talent,” said Anne Nimke, co-founder and CEO. Highlighting employee programs, perks and amenities gives employers a competitive advantage in attracting top talent. Employers also use their Company Culture Profile and Culture Badges as a part of a “retention strategy for current employees, by communicating all the things that are available in the workplace,” Nimke explained.
“Culture is misunderstood by most job seekers and often waits until the day a new hire begins. We believe this is backwards,” Nimke said. “We want to help employers to be transparent with their cultures so talent is engaged and more likely to apply. We start with a three to five hour Culture Workshop to identify how employers invest in their employees and the community resulting in awarding of Culture Badges.” When earned, companies communicate their unique culture through the Culture Badges on their career site, job postings, social media, email signatures and other recruitment and employee communication channels.
Roundy’s earned all seven Culture Badges from The Good Jobs: Fun, Extreme Perks, Corporate Responsibility, Flextime, Green DNA, Inclusion and Career Development. Roundy’s Company Culture Profile is public on the Company Culture Directory. Roundy’s proudly displays their Culture Badges on their career page to engage talent and share all of the attributes of their culture that makes them a unique place to work.
It’s very rewarding to see our efforts to cultivate a great culture at Roundy’s recognized,” said Jess Terry, group vice president and chief human resources officer. “Our culture is the heart and soul of our company and the catalyst to our continued success.”
