When it comes to selecting the best of the best in retail, Fortune knows a thing or two. It recently surveyed employees in order to recognize the 2019 Best Workplaces in Retail, and Wegmans and Publix once again proved its retail might. The two nabbed first and second spots, respectively.
According to Fortune, the Great Place to Work survey analyzed anonymous feedback from over 694,000 employees working in retail in the United States. Employees relayed their experiences with the companies, including effectiveness of leaders, company values, and ability to reach their full potential.
The New York-based retailer, Wegmans, managed to once again earn the number one ranking on Fortune’s list, with Publix following in second. Employees touted a unique sense of opportunity in the workspace, as well as the ability to advance and create a career for themselves, as the top two reasons why Wegmans is a great place to work.
With more than 1,200 stores across seven states, retail associates at Publix named its community contributions, quality facilities, and welcoming atmosphere as reasons why they enjoy working for the company. According to a press release, the company followed closely behind Wegmans, ranking second on Fortune’s list.
