Publix Associate Career Fairs: one example of investing in our associates

What makes our culture so different here at Publix?

One reason is the time,  effort and energy we put into developing our most important resource: our associates!

Our Publix Associate Career Fairs are a great example of this. Held periodically throughout the year in participating districts, these events are for store associates interested in progressing in their careers at Publix. It gives them a chance to meet with managers at the department, store and district level to learn more about their jobs, jobs in their or other departments that might interest them, and about what it might take to progress into management.  We think it’s a great program, and the enthusiastic attendance by associates eager to grow in their Publix careers suggests it’s a popular one. And it only makes sense to invest in our associates – since Publix is an associate owned company!

But don’t take our word for it!  See for yourself:
