H-E-B surpasses 100,000 employee milestone


 SAN ANTONIO — H‑E‑B on Wednesday laid its claim as the largest privately held employer in the state of Texas and one of the largest privately held retailers in the nation with more than 100,000 employees. H‑E‑B employs more than 90,000 partners in 332 Texas stores and more than 10,000 partners in 56 stores throughout Mexico.

"This milestone represents our deep commitment to improving the lives of Texans and their families, and creating a work environment that brings the spirit of community to life every day while encouraging innovation, engagement and success," stated Craig Boyan, president and COO. "It takes great people to build a great company, and we look forward to providing even more Texans with meaningful career opportunities that bring new experiences, growth and lifelong connections at H‑E‑B."

"In business and in life, people matter most," said Tina James, SVP human resources for H‑E‑B. "Though simple, this philosophy has shaped H‑E‑B for 112 years. It's why we call our employees partners – because we work together to achieve success and create a strong sense of pride within our stores and throughout the more than 300 communities we serve."

Since the economic slowdown in 2008, H‑E‑B has invested in Texas and created more than 24,000 jobs, highlighting the company's commitment to the markets they serve, the company noted. With current operations totaling 388 stores companywide, H‑E‑B continues to grow and serve more communities throughout Texas and Mexico. In 2017, the company plans to add nine new stores in Texas and six new stores in Mexico.

H‑E‑B's continued commitment to its partners and customers once again earned the company a spot on the 2017 Temkin Experience Ratings and on this year's list of Glassdoor's best places to work in the nation.
