business news in context, analysis with attitude

Fortune is out with its annual "100 Best Places To Work" list, and - no surprise - Wegmans is number four, continuing a 26-year streak of making the list.

"We continue to believe we can only be a great place to shop if we are a great place to work,” said Colleen Wegman, president and CEO of Wegmans Food Markets. “The values we share across our company are demonstrated in the way our employees care for each other, our customers, and our community. We are so grateful for everyone’s dedication to making Wegmans a special place to work and shop for all, and we celebrate this honor together.”

Wegmans was the only retailer to make the top 10.  Number one this year was Cisco, followed by Hilton and American Express.  The balance of the top 10 spots were occupied, in order, by Accenture, NVIDIA, Atlassian, Salesforce, Comcast NBC Universal, and Marriott.

Other notable retailers on the list were Target (# 26), Sheetz (# 58), and Publix (# 91).

KC's View:

I wonder of the folks at Wegmans ever get tired of coming in so high on the list each year.  I suspect not - the company's continued presence and ranking speaks to the idea that nobody there is getting complacent.

The one thing you have to remember about the list is that you have to go through a rigorous application process to even qualify - you can't win if you don't play.
