Our Pillars

Hy-Vee Workforce

Our people are our strength, and we believe our employees should represent the communities they serve. That's why we're building an inclusive workforce with educational opportunities, competitive wages and best-in-the-industry benefits.


Hy-Vee offers our employees the opportunity to pursue on-the-job training, apprenticeships and certifications to advance their knowledge and skillsets in their chosen field. Our training courses help prepare employees for leadership roles, and our apprenticeships & certifications are available for a variety of fields.

Hy-Vee Supplier Diversity

We want customers of all backgrounds to find the products they need in our stores to make their lives easier, healthier and happier. That's why we continue to expand our selection of products produced by local and minority business owners across our more than 550 retail business units.


The triannual Hy-Vee OpportUNITY Inclusive Business Summits gives local minority- and women-owned businesses the opportunity to grow and prosper, while providing Hy-Vee customers with meaningful solutions that support various needs, lifestyles and backgrounds.

Hy-Vee Communities

In an effort to create positive, lasting change, Hy-Vee has donated more than $55 million in charitable contributions to various organizations helping those in need each year.


Through Hy-Vee Homefront, we are proud to partner with our customers and communities to increase awareness and support of important veteran and active duty military assistance programs.
