Survey measures more than 60 factors to determine the best workplaces in the U.S.
Cumberland Farms has been recognized by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces in Retail.
The ranking is based on anonymous surveys representing over 631,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified companies in the retail industry.
Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated over 60 factors measuring whether employees find their organizations create a Great Place to Work For All. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on employees’ experiences of workplace trust and the opportunity to reach their full potential at the organization, no matter who they are or what they do. The balance of each company’s score takes into account employees’ involvement in company innovation, the organization’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders. Cumberland Farms was ranked No. 6 on the FORTUNE “20 Best Workplaces in Retail 2018” list.
“We are proud to have been honored as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces in Retail,” commented Ari Haseotes, CEO of Cumberland Farms. “While the award is flattering, the true value of this achievement is the recognition by Team Members of our efforts to create a Great Place to Work at Cumberland Farms. We take the results of the surveys seriously and work each and every day to make Cumberland Farms a great place to work for all. Our team member discount card and enhanced communications throughout the organization are examples of changes that are a direct result of feedback from past surveys.”
The Best Workplaces in Retail list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified organizations.
Cumberland Farms operates nearly 600 convenience stores across eight states.
