Wegmans Food Markets Press Release

Great Place To Work and Fortune magazine have recognized Wegmans Food Markets as one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2024.

This is Wegmans 27th time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at sixth place. Earning a spot means that Wegmans is one of the best companies to work for in the country.

The 100 Best Companies to Work For list is the only recognition that focuses on how employees feel about their workplace. Great Place To Work evaluates confidential feedback from employees, matching against HR data from participating companies. Only companies with consistently high survey responses across the 60 statements that comprise the Trust Index Survey are honored with placement on the list.

“There is nothing more important to us than being the best place to work for our people,” said Colleen Wegman, president and CEO of Wegmans Food Markets. “We're grateful for the many ways our people live our values and create a welcoming place for everyone across our communities. We celebrate this honor together and thank our people for making Wegmans a special place to work and shop for all.”

The Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For List is highly competitive. Great Place To Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback from more than 1.3 million U.S. employees. Companies are only considered for the list if they are Great Place To Work Certified organizations with 1,000 or more employees in the U.S.

Great Place To Work is the only company culture award in the world that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on their ability to create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of employee identity or job role.

Earning a spot on the list is an important indicator of overall company performance. Companies on the 100 Best list consistently outperform the market, and exceed their competitors on key business measures like retention and innovation.

“When people ask about what sets the Best Companies apart from their competitors, it’s one key ingredient: trust,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. “When employees trust their leaders, their colleagues, and the organization, they become empowered to reach their full potential.

“High-trust workplaces will be faster to innovate, more resilient in the face of disruption, and more likely to succeed in today’s rapidly changing, AI-integrating world.”

“Fortune is happy to have collaborated with Great Place To Work for the 27th year to recognize the 100 Best Companies to Work For,” said Alyson Shontell, editor-in-chief at Fortune. “In a difficult macro environment with unprecedented challenges, these companies seemed to navigate their organizations toward steady and positive working environments for employees. Congratulations to all who were recognized.”

In 2023, Wegmans also ranked as a Best Workplace for Parents, Best Workplace for Women, and was ranked No. 1 on the Fortune Best Workplaces in Retail list. In addition, they were named to the PEOPLE Companies That Care list.

Celebration at Wegmans Stores

Customers and employees will celebrate the honor at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 6, when mini cupcakes will be served at every Wegmans store. For customers who prefer a healthy option instead of mini cupcakes, Clementine tangerines will be available.
