Culture at Big Y

Culture of Caring


At Big Y, we strive to treat each other with respect, compassion and sensitivity. We encourage all of our fellow employees to do what is right, maximize our collective talents and stress our interdependence and interconnectedness.

We are united in common aspirations, goals, and rules of conduct in a caring, comprehensive, and harmonious community of fellow employees committed to excellence.


Building Firm Foundations

Building Firm Foundations with Big Y's Helping Hands (BFF) is a program where Big Y employees volunteer their time and skills to work together on a basic home improvement project for a fellow Big Y employee experiencing a hardship.

Friendship Fund

Big Y employees may elect to make weekly contributions to a Friendship Fund that helps co-workers in their location who are in need of financial assistance due to an unexpected hardship.

Big Y Community Campaign

One of our goals as a company is to improve the lives of the people who live in and around our communities. Each year Big Y Foods holds its annual "Big Y Community Campaign (BYCC)". The Campaign provides an opportunity for employees to donate to a charity of their choice though a weekly payroll deduction.

Big Y Employees Sharing Time (B.E.S.T.) and Employee Community Service Days

Big Y has two programs that encourage and recognize our employees involvement in their communities. These programs provide groups of employees' the opportunity to volunteer their time to give back to their communities. The satisfaction and pride that comes from helping others in our neighborhoods is what makes our employees World Class.
