Ari Haseotes, president and CEO of Cumberland Farms, was selected by the Obama administration to represent the company at the White House Summit on Worker Voice this week. Haseotes participated in a panel discussion entitled “High Road Employer Strategies: Win/Win Solutions” as part of the day-long event Oct.7.

According to Cecilia Munoz, assistant to President Obama and director of the U.S. Domestic Policy Council, the administration was specifically seeking participation from “an employer who has taken great lengths to listen to their employees and learn what really matters to them.”

“This special honor really reflects the work of the entire team at Cumberland Farms and their ongoing commitment to making our company a great place to work,” said Haseotes. “We are so incredibly proud and honored that our efforts and our values are being recognized by the White House.”

The White House invitation marks the latest in a string of high-profile recognitions for Cumberland Farms since Haseotes took the helm in 2008. Most prominently, the family-owned convenience store chain was widely praised for its approach to healthcare, extending full-time health benefits to an additional 1,500 formerly part-time employees well ahead of the Affordable Care Act mandate. The company has likewise introduced a variety of progressive compensation models and communication platforms aimed at driving retention and employee satisfaction.
