Bashas' Family of Stores yesterday was named one of the 'Best Places to Work' by the Phoenix Business Journal and BestCompaniesAZ. Bashas' is the only grocer that made the list for 2007, and it is the second consecutive year the grocer has been recognized for its positive working environment.
"The real honor is knowing that our employees had the ultimate say in this award - it's wonderful to know they're satisfied with a well-balanced work environment that addresses both their professional and personal needs," said Mike Gantt, Bashas' s.v.p. of human resources for the Phoenix based chain. "Everyone benefits from this type of environment: our employees, our customers, and the communities we serve."
The Best Places to Work award is based solely on employee survey results, evaluated and ranked by Quantum Market Research Inc. The survey measured employees' opinions of the company's work environment; opportunities for personal growth and development; people practices; and how the company embraces innovation and new ideas.
In order to be named one of the Best Places to Work, companies had to receive an overall favorable composite score of 80 percent or greater from employee survey results.
This year's list was among the toughest to be voted onto, according to BestCompaniesAZ, as there was a 40 percent increase in applications from local companies.
Bashas' operates more than 160 grocery stores in Arizona, California, and New Mexico.
