What does it take to be the BEST? In this episode, we talk about making those end-of-year “Best Companies to Work For” lists and what it takes to become an Employer of Choice with your current and future employees. This week on ProjectHR, Karen Loughlin, Talent Sourcing and Diversity Manager for Wegmans Food Markets, talks with us about Wegmans company values which include:
- How a regional supermarket chain gets recognized nationally as a great place to work
- The importance of corporate values
- Why employees are Wegmans' best brand ambassadors
- How happy employees make happy customers
“Our late Chairman of the Board, Robert Wegman, used to say ‘We can only take care of our customers if we first take care of the needs of our people’ – and that continues to be a key to our success.”
