Wegmans, the Rochester-based supermarket chain, has added another honor to its growing list. According to a poll done by Axios and Harris, Wegmans was number one in corporate reputation beating out such heavyweights as Amazon (2), Walt Disney (5), and Microsoft (9).
The poll took the 100 most visible companies and had them ranked for corporate reputation. Wegmans finished first in ethics, products and service, citizenship, culture, and character. It ranked two in growth, vision, and trajectory and fifth in affinity. Last year, Wegmans was ranked second overall in the same poll.
Other notable companies and their place in the poll were L.L. Bean (4), Samsung (7), Proctor and Gamble (8), and Sony (10). The biggest drop was Facebook which went from 51st to 94th. The Federal Government finished last. Congratulations to the Wegmans family!
