Publix Recognized as One of FORTUNE's 100 Best Companies to Work For
LAKELAND, Fla., March 5, 2015 — For the 18th consecutive year, Publix has been honored as one
of FORTUNE magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For." Publix was ranked No. 81 on this year's
list — down from No. 75 last year — and was one of only 12 companies to have made the list every
year since its inception in 1998.
"As we celebrate a company milestone this year, I'm proud to reflect on our commitment to
our people, culture and communities over the past 85 years," said Publix CEO Ed Crenshaw.
"We are humbled to be recognized by FORTUNE for 18 consecutive years as a great place to work.
The secret to our success is our associates - company owners themselves - who’ve been making Publix
a great place to work for 85 years."
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.
