Island Pacific Supermarket Earns Great Place To Work Certification

Island Pacific

City of Industry, California-based Island Pacific Supermarket has been certified by Great Place to Work.

This award is based on anonymous employee surveys of what current employees say about their experience working at Island Pacific. Great Place to Work Certification is a “employer-of-choice” recognition that companies aspire to achieve. It is recognized worldwide by employees and employers and is a benchmark for identifying and recognizing outstanding employee experience.

“Great Place to Work Certification isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, VP of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Island Pacific Supermarket is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

Research shows that job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at certified workplaces are 93 percent more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.

Maricel Aguilar, Island Pacific’s director of research and development, has worked in several large multinational companies.

“What makes Island Pacific stand apart from the rest is that it’s a company that puts people first. When I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, the company took care of me above and beyond my expectations. Not only did they keep me on the payroll with full pay and benefits for almost a year but after I recovered, they even built me a commercial home kitchen that enabled me to work from home.”
