Wegmans employees became heroes to many overnight in 2020 as Americans realized the physical and emotional toll of keeping the country fed during the pandemic. Its 105 stores gained 3,500 employees over the past year; about 40% of the workforce is full-time. The New York–based grocery chain worked hard to keep those staffers safe, retraining restaurant workers to service meat and seafood counters and offering job-protected unpaid leave for those who were worried about working in person. (Wegmans has historically provided generous benefits for the grocery industry, including a month of fully paid parental leave.) “It wasn’t just employees stocking empty shelves, doing extra cleaning and sanitizing around the store [that made Wegmans a great place to work this year],” one employee notes. “It was a combination of those things that helped us get through this pandemic.”
