Associates don’t just work at Publix—they own it.

We’re proud to be a company that is owned by our associates. In fact, the National Center for Employee Ownership has recognized us as the largest employee-owned company in the US.

Our health and wellness program: Life. Inspired.

In 2014, we introduced our associate wellness program, Life. Inspired. We view our associates as our most valuable asset, which is why we support our associates on their wellness journeys. Our goal is to encourage a culture of health and well-being by offering:

  • Quick, easy access to no- or low-cost health and wellness programs and events.
  • Motivation and support to engage in healthful lifestyle activities that are better for our associates and their families.
  • Resources to help associates eat well, get regular exercise, quit bad habits like tobacco, and achieve overall well-being.

By helping our associates feel their best physically and emotionally at home and work, our associates can be there for our customers and our communities.
