Lululemon tops best US retail companies to work for in 2022

A specialty sportswear retailer was the only retailer to make the top 25 in an annual ranking of the best companies to work for.

Lululemon took ninth place in Glassdoor’s 14and annual Employees’ Choice Awards honoring the 2022 100 Best Workplaces (among employers with 1,000 or more employees) across the United States.

Trader Joe’s (#32); HEB (#33); eBay (#55); Wegmans Food Markets (#80); Madewell (#88); Scheels (#93); Costco (#93); and REI (#95). (See the end of the article for more on retailers.)

The world of work is changing rapidly, fueled by the pandemic and now millions of workers are reassessing their expectations of employers,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, CEO of Glassdoor. This year’s Best Workplaces winners are leading the way by listening and responding to employee feedback and reinventing the employee experience to truly put their employees first. »

When employees submit reviews about their employer on Glassdoor, they are invited to share their thoughts on some of the best reasons to work for their employer (pros), cons (cons), and are encouraged to provide advice to management. Additionally, employees are asked to rate how satisfied they are overall with their employer, rate their CEO as well as rate key workplace attributes such as career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior leadership and work-life balance. .

Employees are also asked if they would recommend their employer to a friend and if they think their employer’s six-month business outlook is positive, negative, or if they have no opinion.
