Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine Name Wegmans One of the 2018 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For®, Ranking #2


Rochester, NY, - Wegmans has been named one of the 2018 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and Fortune. This year marks the 21st anniversary of the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Wegmans has been on the list every year, and this year ranks #2.

The list is based on survey responses from more than 310,000 employees rating their workplace culture on 50-plus elements of the workplace. These include trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie and workplace traits linked to innovation. The ranking accounted for the experiences of all employees across all demographics.

According to the Great Place to Work, the 2018 winners continue to show that a high-trust culture for all fuels better business results. Their research shows that “list winners keep outperforming the stock market, beating industry rivals when it comes to talent retention and demonstrating higher levels of productivity than peers.”

President & CEO Colleen Wegman, who is the fourth generation of her family to lead the century-old company, said “When we see our company near the top of this list we feel pride, but also tremendous gratitude for our people who make Wegmans a special place to work and shop for all. Customers often say how much they appreciate our employees for making Wegmans such a happy place. We thank each of our employees for this honor and celebrate with them and our customers.”

“The 2018 100 Best are true leaders,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “In the face of competition, change, and financial constraints, they consistently prioritize building the trust, pride, and camaraderie that fuels business performance. And they’re doing it at scale for everyone, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.”
