Publix Recognized as one of FORTUNE's 100 Best Companies to Work For
LAKELAND, Fla., Jan. 16, 2014—For the 17th consecutive year, Publix has been honored as one of FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.” Publix was ranked No. 75 on this year’s list — up from No. 77 last year — and was one of only 13 companies to have made the list every year since its inception in 1998.
“We are often asked what makes Publix a great place to work,” said Publix CEO Ed Crenshaw. “I’m proud to share that our people make the difference; their dedication to our customers, communities, our company and each other. Being recognized for 17 consecutive years is a testament to our strong company culture and diverse work environment.”
Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on a survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about the management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The remaining third is based on a company’s responses to the Culture Audit questionnaire, which asks detailed questions about pay and benefits programs, and open-ended questions about hiring, communication and diversity.
