Food Lion Recognized For Workplace Diversity By Newsweek

Food Lion

Salisbury, North Carolina-based Food Lion has been recognized by Newsweek as one of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity.”

Food Lion, an omnichannel retailer with 82,000 employees serving communities across 10 states, has a commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment where workers have a sense of belonging. Founded in 1957, Food Lion is a company of Ahold Delhaize USA, the U.S. division of Zaandam-based Ahold Delhaize.

“The work we do to support and celebrate our associates is an ongoing priority as part our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Linda Johnson, SVP of human resources and communications.

“This recognition from Newsweek underscores the importance of making Food Lion a great place to work. Our associates are the heart of Food Lion and a reflection of the diverse towns and cities we serve.”

The ranking scored 1,000 companies across the U.S. for their value of diversity in their workplaces. Newsweek, in cooperation with Plant-A Insights Group, used publicly available data, interviews with human resources professionals and a large-scale employee study to develop the list. Respondents were asked questions about corporate culture and working environment.

The grocer, categorized in the consumer sector, is among the companies across six economic sectors that survey respondents said truly respect and value different kinds of people.

For the past 13 consecutive years, Food Lion has earned a 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index. For the past five years, it has been named one of the Top 50 Best-of-the-Best Corporation for Inclusion by the National Business Inclusion Consortium, spearheaded by the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce.

Meg Ham, president of Food Lion, is a member of the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion coalition, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance this work.
