Workforce Diversity & Inclusion
At Publix, we believe that workforce diversity is essential to our Company's success. Our goal is to continue to attract talented associates and provide environments where similarities and differences in our associates are valued and utilized to achieve organizational goals and objectives. Differences in our associates include many physical characteristics, however, it's the fresh ideas and unique perspectives that our associates bring to our company, which makes diversity so important to us.
Publix values inclusive work environments where all associates are provided opportunities for professional growth and development. We are committed to providing environments where associates are comfortable sharing their ideas and perspectives as part of our team. In fact, we are so interested in the opinions of our associates that we survey them annually on their perception of the company, opportunities for growth, as well as several other factors in an effort to continuously improve associate satisfaction levels. The diversity of our workforce and the inclusiveness of our work environments have contributed to our success in the competitive grocery industry and continue to help us better understand and serve our customers.
