H-E-B Surprises All Employees With $100 After Being Named the Best Grocery Retailer
Hip, hip, H-E-B-ray!
It's always a good day to go grocery shopping at H-E-B. And the Texas-based supermarket chain, wants its employees to know just how important they are to the company's success.
Recently, the grocer was named the top grocery retailer in the third annual Dunhumby Retailer Preference Index: Grocery Channel Edition, beating out big names in the trade like Trader Joe's, Amazon, and Costco to claim the coveted title. To honor all of their employees hard work, staffers were given a $100 bill and thank you note as a gesture of the grocer's appreciation. Team members who work at H-E-B's Favor delivery service also received the generous gift.
"At H-E-B, our success starts with our people. H-E-B is committed to investing in our Partners who we consider the heart and soul of our company. To celebrate being named the #1 grocery retailer in the nation by Dunnhumby, we presented each Partner with a $100 bill," a company ambassador shared with Southern Living via email. "It’s H-E-B’s way of saying thank you for all the hard work and passionate service our Partners provide each and every day to our customers and the many communities we serve throughout Texas."
A good time to be a H-E-B employee, indeed, that's for sure.
We love that this beloved Texas grocery chain took the time to share a heartfelt note with all of its team members and gave them this unexpected bonus, to boot. What a thoughtful and kind gesture.
