How do you measure success within your business? There are many ways, and one is the company culture that you cultivate. This is especially vital for retail, where the atmosphere and the attitudes of your employees can have a direct effect on the mood and buying habits of your customers.

A top quality grocery store can be defined in no small part by the pride its employees take in being helpful and knowledgeable, as well as by keeping areas clean, aisles fresh and neat, products restocked. When organizations value their employees, giving them the resources and training they need to be at their best and advance, the result is a positive company culture that keeps both staff and management fulfilled and happy. When consumers pick up on that positive culture and respond with positivity in kind, success is imminent.

Great Place to Work® is a site that measures the traits that make a company not just great on its outward consumer-facing side, but a great workplace on the inside as well. The company determines its rankings by looking at both employees and management, measuring the trust and pride employees have in their workplace and the objective results that managers are able to obtain from their teams. These are the six grocery chains and convenience stores that made the grade. Some are national chains while others are regional or family-owned—all six appear on Great Place to Work®’s list of the Top 100 Best Companies to Work For in America in 2014.
