a healthier, happier team

our well-being philosophy

Looking at the big picture, well-being goes far beyond exercise and a healthy diet. It’s about the quality of the most important parts of life: health, career satisfaction, social relationships, financial security and connections to the community. When these elements are in balance, people feel and perform their best. That’s why we’re partnering with Gallup Corporationlink opens in a new window – a leader in global well-being research – to create a workplace atmosphere that supports personal well-being. And we’re working hard to provide the tools and resources our team members and their families need to achieve their personal best.

our well-being goals

We believe prevention is an important step toward healthier communities, and we’ve set goals for our team members based on this philosophy. From getting recommended preventive health screenings to putting our financial tools to use, these goals help us measure and report our progress in improving the health of our team.

well-being captains

Personal well-being is not the same for everyone. To support our team members in achieving their personal goals, we've named well-being captains at each of our stores, distribution centers and pyramid divisions. These team members, who number more than 1,800 across the company, inspire their teams to embrace well-being in fun and creative ways, including organizing health-themed competitions and activities, leading volunteer efforts and celebrating success stories.

our benefits

Many of our team member benefits are specially designed to improve team members’ lives based on the five elements of our well-being philosophy: their health, career satisfaction, social relationships, financial security and connections to the community.
