LAKELAND, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Publix has been named one of Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. Publix was ranked No. 47 on this year’s list and was one of only 10 companies to have made the list every year since its inception in 1998.

Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on a survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees. The survey asks questions related to their workplace, including the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues. The remaining third is based on a company’s responses to the Culture Audit questionnaire, which asks questions about pay and benefits programs, hiring, communication and diversity.
