The ranking accounted for the experiences of employees across all demographics.

“This honor celebrates each and every one of our employees and their dedication to always help others,” Wegmans President and CEO Colleen Wegman said. “It has been truly inspiring to witness our people rise above every challenge during the past year to become a closer and stronger family company together. We are extremely grateful for the trusted relationships that exist between our people and our customers that continue to earn us a place on this very special list.”

Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush said, “Congratulations to the ‘100 Best Companies to Work For.’ These companies have stood out for heroic efforts to care for their employees, their customers and our society, in a difficult year. Remarkably, our research found that employee experience scores rose at these workplaces overall last year – a testament to the resilience of their inclusive, high-trust cultures.”
