Hy-Vee, Lund receive MAXX awards from FMI

BY Allison Cerra

ARLINGTON, Va. The Food Marketing Institute recognized two companies for investing in the growth and development of their employees and positively impacting their bottom line through human resource programs and training.

Supermarket chains Lund Food Holdings and Hy-Vee each were awarded the 2010 Maximizing People Potential award at the FMI Human Resources/Training Development Conference held last week in Baltimore, Md.

Hy-Vee, an Iowa-based supermarket chain, was recognized for its healthy lifestyle program, which encourages employees to become engaged in managing their health by offering rewards for active participation.

Lund — the parent company to 10 Lunds and 11 Byerly’s supermarkets in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area — was awarded for developing a program to address unresolved disputes that could affect productivity and profitability and also could diminish the work experience, harm morale and foster distrust, FMI said. The company also received the MAXX award in 2007.
