Publix Culture

Respect the dignity of the individual

To this day, Publix is a place where our customers, associates and suppliers can feel welcome, secure and valued. The differences in each individual are embraced and celebrated here. It's our hope that with each interaction, our associates learn and grow a little more from our customers and each other.

Mr. George was once quoted saying, "If you want people to respect you or your company, you must first show respect for them." Through the Open Door Policy, we still hold true to that belief today. We welcome our associates to share their voice each year by completing a survey on their workplace, job and manager. And for the last 18 years, we've made FORTUNE's 100 Best Companies to Work For list — so our associates must believe Publix is a great place too!

By respecting each other, we become a stronger company and stronger as individuals. Next month, learn how the lesson treat customer like royalty came to be and how we carry on that lesson today.
