Surveyed Associates reinforced SpartanNash’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Food solutions company SpartanNash (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SPTN) is proud to announce its recognition as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024 by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group for its commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB). The Company received the award based on quantitative data from an Associate survey as well as other qualitative scoring methods.

“Creating an environment where every Associate belongs and feels empowered to do their best work is a fundamental part of our People First culture,” said SpartanNash Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Nicole Zube. “Valuing differences is a core competency we expect as we actively strive for inclusive behaviors across our company, encouraging a sense of belonging.”

Advancing DEIB at all levels of the Company is a key part of SpartanNash’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals. Over the past two years, SpartanNash has revitalized its Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) sponsored by executive leadership, expanded the internship program beyond 100 participants annually, and launched new learning and development programs. Additionally, the Company has expanded its Total Rewards offerings to appeal to a broader base of Associates. By attracting and developing diverse Associates representing different backgrounds, skills, experiences and perspectives, the Company can better connect with and serve its store guests and customers.

“Diversity is a widely discussed topic – and it remains a crucial factor as people look for an employer or a business partner. Newsweek and market-data research firm Plant-A Insights are proud to introduce ‘America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024,’ highlighting companies that are committed to offering a diverse and inclusive work environment,” said Newsweek’s Global Editor in Chief Nancy Cooper.
