“We’re incredibly proud of the inclusive culture we’re building at PDL and outstanding talent we have, which led to this recognition,” said JJ Fleeman, President, Peapod Digital Labs. “So, it’s appropriate to announce these on Employee Appreciation Day since the awards were received based on direct feedback from our own employees. We earned this recognition because of our exceptional people. It's the talent, innovation and care they exhibit every single day that has built our culture."

The company was also recognized by Top Workplaces for DE&I Practices and Remote Work practices. The recognition as one of the top places to work in the country speaks to the company's people-centered culture.

“We celebrate how far we've come but always recognize that we have more work to do when it comes to inclusion and equity for all underrepresented groups," said Glenn Henry, Head of Human Resources & Communications. “Talented people want to work for companies where they can be part of something innovative and impactful, and we are committed to continuing our work to be a diverse and inclusive workplace for all employees.”

Top Workplaces USA celebrates organizations with 150 or more employees that have built great cultures; over 42,000 organizations were invited to participate in the Top Workplaces USA survey. Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey, issued by Energage.
