Couche-Tard earns third consecutive Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award

Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. has clinched the 2024 Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award (GEWA). It is the third year in a row that Couche-Tard has earned the honour.

“Your commitment to creating environments where employees are listened to, valued and positioned to use their strengths every day is what sets you apart. Thank you for setting a new global standard in what it means to be a thriving workplace,” said Jon Clifton, Gallup’s CEO.

The GEWA spotlights organizations with the most engaged workplace cultures. According to research, only 23 per cent of employees are engaged, and among U.S. totals, workers focused rank at 33 per cent. In contrast, 70 per cent of employees at winning GEWA organizations are engaged.

Gallup singled out Couche-Tard for its approach to engaging and developing its workforce.

“Creating a great experience for our customers begins with having engaged teams,” said Ina Strand, chief people officer at Couche-Tard. “With record participation in this past year’s survey, we’re honoured that our investment in our employees’ growth and engagement has been recognized with the GEWA for a third consecutive year.”

A statement reads that highly engaged organizations consistently outperform their peers across a spectrum of key business metrics, including customer ratings, profitability, productivity, turnover, safety incidents, shrinkage, absenteeism, quality, well-being and organizational citizenship.

“There is nothing more important to me than protecting and promoting the One Team culture we have fostered at Couche-Tard,” said Brian Hannasch, Couche-Tard president and CEO. “As this recognition from Gallup shows, we have continued to live by our values, and our people have continued to feel heard, valued and respected at work. Looking ahead, we will identify ways to further build on our record engagement and our winning workplace.”
