Family-owned regional grocery chain Nugget Market prides itself on taking care of its employees. When its workers put their safety on the line during the start of the pandemic, the company put in place more rigorous safety measures and showed its appreciation by increasing pay by $2 an hour for all associates. Nugget Market extends its health care benefits to part-time employees who work 22 hours or more a week, and there’s no tiered benefit system so both associates and executives receive the same coverage plan. Employees are regularly celebrated: Managers recognize standout associates, giving them an opportunity to spin a wheel for cash prizes. Nugget Market also shows how it cares deeply for the environment—it has made a substantial investment of $15 million in clean fuel cell energy with Bloom Energy, helping the company get one step closer to its ultimate goal of clean hydrogen power and a zero-net carbon footprint.
