Report: Kroger's expansion into loyalty, e-commerce keeping HR department busy


CINCINNATI — Kroger has ramped up its headquarter workforce by 50% since 2008, according to a recent report posted on, a Gannett Company. 


The supermarket operator has created roughly 100 jobs a year for six years, according to the report, thanks to advances in loyalty card utilization and the company's exploration of e-commerce.


Kroger's expansion of private label penetration also has contributed to the job growth, the report noted. 


For example, Laura Studaway joined Kroger in 2007 as the grocer's health and beauty category manager. According to the report, she's an engineer by trade and took the job at Kroger as she relocated to Cincinnati from Minnesota. "I love my job because it's like owning your own business unit," she told "I'm empowered to make decisions."
