Grainger Named to Fortune’s ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’

It is the second consecutive year the company received the recognition, according to a news release announcing the honor.

Lake Forest, Illinois-based industrial supplies distributor Grainger has been named one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2023, the second consecutive year the company received the recognition.

To assemble the list, Fortune analyzed the anonymous survey responses of more than half a million employees from Great Place To Work Certified companies with at least 1,000 workers, according to a news release.

Companies also submitted essays describing their efforts to “offer generous and innovative support for workers, which were validated against employee survey responses,” Grainger said.

“Each day, the Grainger team is resolute in embracing our purpose — We Keep the World Working — to serve millions of customers across the globe, and support each other,” said D.G. Macpherson, Chairman and CEO of Grainger. “This recognition is a testament to our efforts to ensure Grainger is a place where everyone can have a fulfilling and meaningful career.”

Grainger was previously named one of the 2023 Fortune ‘World’s Most Admired Companies’ and one of the Fortune Best Workplaces for Women in 2022.

Grainger ranked as both the No. 1 Industrial Distributor and No. 1 MRO Industrial Distributor on MDM’s 2022 Top Distributors list.
