Alimentation Couche-Tard has been awarded for the third time the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award (GEWA). It is the third consecutive year that Couche-Tard has received the award, which recognizes the world's most engaged workplace cultures.

"Congratulations to the 60 organizations that have redefined what it means to be a great place to work. Your commitment to creating environments where employees are listened to, valued and positioned to use their strengths every day is what sets you apart. Thank you for setting a new global standard in what it means to be a thriving workplace," says Jon Clifton, Gallup chief executive officer.

The GEWA winners' ratio of engaged employees to actively disengaged employees is 11 times higher than the global average. Worldwide, only 23% of employees are engaged—that is, committed to their work and connected to their workplace—and just 33% of employees in the U.S. workforce are engaged. Seventy percent of employees at winning GEWA organizations are engaged.

With workplaces around the world continuing to experience disruption, Gallup recognized Couche-Tard for its ability to engage and develop its people in innovative ways.

"Creating a great experience for our customers begins with having engaged teams. Our annual myVOICE engagement survey, facilitated by Gallup, helps us continue improving in our efforts to foster an environment where our people can thrive, grow in their careers, and be their authentic selves," adds Ina Strand, chief people officer at Couche-Tard. "With record participation in this past year's survey, we're honored that our investment in our employees' growth and engagement has been recognized with the GEWA for a third consecutive year."

"There is nothing more important to me than protecting and promoting the One Team culture we have fostered at Couche-Tard," continues Brian Hannasch, Couche-Tard president and CEO. "As this recognition from Gallup shows, we have continued to live by our values, and our people have continued to feel heard, valued and respected at work.  Looking ahead, we will identify ways to further build on our record engagement and our winning workplace."
