Meijer Recognized as a Great Place to Work® for Sixth Consecutive Year


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., June 20, 2024 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/– Midwest retailer Meijer was named a Great Place to Work® for the sixth consecutive year, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to championing a culture of dignity and respect for its team members.

Meijer is a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer that operates 241 supercenters throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin. A privately-owned and family-operated company since 1934, Meijer pioneered the “one-stop shopping” concept and has evolved through the years to include expanded fresh produce and meat departments, as well as pharmacies, comprehensive apparel departments, pet departments, garden centers, toys and electronics.

The Great Place to Work® certification recognizes employers for creating outstanding employee experiences based on responses to The Trust Index Survey ™, an organization-wide assessment of culture. This survey measures employee feedback across organizational culture, credibility, fairness, respect, camaraderie, and pride.

“From the beginning, Hendrik and Gezina Meijer established a special culture that makes our company a great place to work,” Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes said. “This team member feedback is a testament we’re living the legacy our founders envisioned.”

In its sixth year of participating in the program, Meijer achieved its highest survey score, particularly excelling in three areas: Strong commitment to diversity, equality, inclusion, and belonging; providing a physically safe place to work; and making team members feel welcome upon joining the Meijer team.

Meijer celebrates its 90th anniversary this year and continues to care for team members by treating them like family. For example, Meijer team members are eligible to receive a variety of benefits, including weekly pay, team member discounts, and flexible scheduling.

“These are our highest scores to date on this survey, which is really meaningful,” said Michelle Hall, Senior Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer. “Our leaders are not only creating a positive environment for team members across the company to learn and grow, but they’re doing it in a way that makes Meijer a Great Place to Work® and also a great environment for our customers to shop.”

The retailer also invests in the success of its team members, offering career advancement opportunities, free college education, paid parental leave, child care discounts, access to multiple health insurance plan options, and the option for 401(k) retirement contributions.
