88,000 millennials were asked to determine the 100 Best Places to Work for their generation. We’re proud to say that Publix was ranked 74th among them when it comes to levels of trust, pride and camaraderie in the workplace, according to FORTUNE.
“The associate has a voice at Publix — and that makes me feel valued as a person,” says one millennial associate.
Another millennial quoted in the aritcle notes:
“Publix has a lot of opportunities for advancement. I think it’s great that they only promote within the company giving anyone a fair chance at building a career with the company no matter what your schooling background is or where you’ve previously have worked.”
A FORTUNE Magazine article published today listed the 10 best workplaces in the Fortune 500 list of the nation’s largest companies that publicly report revenues each year. “Among this year’s Fortune 500, only 16 companies are recognized for having great workplace cultures,” the article notes.
“These employers have earned high marks from their workers, who completed an extensive workplace culture and trust index survey administered by Great Place to Work, Fortune’s longtime partner for our annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For.”
Publix counts among its peers in this list some national and international giants of a broad swath of industries. Here’s Fortune’s review of Publix:
“There is a strong family feeling at this employee-owned supermarket chain, which operates more than 1,100 stores in six Southeastern states. Turnover here is incredibly low, averaging 5% for full timers and 38% for part timers. Nearly 20,000 employees have worked at Publix for more than 15 years, and one reason they stay is a stock ownership plan that automatically plunks shares into employee accounts at the end of each year. The contribution ranges from 7% to 10% of their pay. Cost to employees is zero. And for the last 55 years, Publix stock has grown on average by almost 16% annually. All these factors have made Publix the largest employee-owned company in the nation.”
Thank you, Fortune and thank you associates who respond so favorably to the Fortune anonymous survey each year. But ultimately, we owe it all to our founder, George Jenkins who had the vision to set up such a fine and sustaining culture.
