It’s the Actions That Count: Find Out Why Our Employees Enjoy Coming into Work Every day
At Wegmans, we understand it’s not enough to say we empower our employees; it’s that we listen to their feedback, and truly care about the success of each person we employ. Of course we do, but it’s actions that truly count. Over on Glassdoor, more than 1,000 of our employees have shared why they love working at Wegmans, citing everything from the flexibility to the career mobility.
It’s these reasons and more that 94% of our employees said they were proud to tell others they work at Wegmans.
Building a culture where employees can thrive and develop in is not a one-time thing, it’s something we work hard at every day. Take a look at some of the programs we’ve implemented that make Wegmans a truly unique place to work:
Have a suggestion, question or concern? We’re listening.
At Wegmans, employees are empowered to make decisions that improve their work and benefit our company. We invest in various programs to put our employees’ ideas into action. Open Door Days, Huddles, Focus Groups, a two-way Q&A blog with our SVP of Operations are all examples of our commitment to listen to our people closest to the work and closest to the customer to help us continuously improve. We believe this makes our work more fun and more meaningful, whether a cashier, chef, accountant or baker.
