retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Fortune is out with its annual “100 Best Places to Work” list, and Wegmans is once again neat the top - in 2nd place, as it was last year, and making the list for the 21st year in a row.

Salesforce is number one on this year’s list. Rounding out the top 10 are Ultimate Software, Boston Consulting, Edward Jones, Kimpton Hotels, Workday, Genentech, Hyatt and Kimley-Horn.

Other retailers making the list are REI (#43), Publix (#47), Sheetz (#66), Nugget Market (#70), Nordstrom (#88), and The Container Store (#93).
KC's View:
Publix, REI and Nordstrom also have been on the list for 21 years, which is extraordinary … along with Wegmans, they’ve been on this Fortune list longer than Salesforce even has been in existence.

It is a changeable list, with moveable criteria. The Container Store once was number one; has it really declined that much?

But still, the companies that continue to make the list, year after year, deserve our respect.
