H-E-B, Trader Joe's, Costco, and Wegmans Top Best Places to Work List

H-E-B, Trader Joe's, Costco, and Wegmans Top Best Places to Work List

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

2017 is here, and with it, new resolutions and accomplishments. Glassdoor, noted reviewer of companies and their employment terms, has already announced its yearly picks for top places to work. Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work of 2017, Employee’s Choice has H-E-B, Costco, Wegmans, and Trader Joe’s included. 

Highly decorated with large tech companies, what about these retailers made them a top choice for employees across the board? The grocery companies have distinguished themselves with their company cultures, establishing innovative methods of drawing and keeping their employees–thus, providing better return for their customers. 

The Harvard Business Review reported that Trader Joe’s has also pinpointed employee empowerment as a recipe for company success. Trader Joe’s was named as 33 on 2017’s list, for its fourth appearance on the annual report. 

Doug Rauch, Former President of Trader Joe's

Trader Joe’s Former President Doug Rauch stated that emphasizing employee voices is paramount to keeping them engaged with the company. 

Costco aims to hire the right individual people off the bat, with the correct training to launch them even further. The company, number 34 on the list for its sixth consecutive year, stated that this strategy secures better productivity, and keeps all Costco employees looking for new ways to keep customers satisfied. 

Jim Sinegal, Founder, Costco

According to Costco Founder Jim Sinegal, retail is fundamentally a people business. He stated that there are two pillars to Costco’s culture; to set the highest standards for its employees, and to encourage employees to take ownership of their work. 

Craig Boyan, President & Chief Operating Officer, H-E-B

“Our store leaders run their business the way they know best, and each store and each department in each store is always looking to improve and evolve how we do things,” stated H-E-B President and COO Craig Boyan to Harvard Business Review. “The key is pushing decision-making to those who know best–partners in our stores–and having great leaders and partners to be constantly learning and working to evolve our business.” 

Boyan stated that H-E-B, number 27 on the list for its fourth consecutive year included, aims to set the bar high for its employees, and consistently push them to do better. H-E-B also calls its employees “partners,” as all members of H-E-B are invested in the company’s betterment. The company grants its partners raises, and then challenges them to earn them by establishing new innovative ideas for the company. H-E-B puts emphasis on team and store success, rather than individual. 

Its inclusion on Glassdoor’s 2017 List of Best Places to Work as number 50, will make for just the latest in a list of Wegmans accomplishments. Wegmans was also recently named as a top choice for Millennials' workplace, in addition to being named favorite grocery retailer by Market Force Information

Also amongst the list of tech companies adorning the list, comes convenience store chain QuikTrip.

As the buy-side continues to hone strategies for success through its employrs and consumers, Deli Market News will have all the latest.
