Journal ranks C&K Markets No. 6 in state

C&K Market, Inc., a Brookings-based family and employee-owned independent grocer, was recently ranked No. 6 by the Portland Business Journal.

The company operates grocery stores and pharmacies under the banners of Ray’s Food Place, Shop Smart, C&K Market, and Pharmacy Express.

 The local grocery company achieved its high-ranking position on the Healthiest Employers in Oregon list, which includes companies with 1,500-plus employees. 

The award was developed to recognize businesses that are committed to creating a healthy workplace for employees.

 This past year, C&K Market launched the C&K Healthy Choices Program, a comprehensive benefits and wellness initiative designed to promote and encourage the health and wellbeing of C&K employees and their families. 

The program includes expanded health insurance options for eligible team members, enhanced wellness coverage, and yearly biometric health screenings for all employees and their covered spouses, at no cost to employees. An additional reward is a reduced monthly premium for healthy results.

C&K also launched a medical home program in which covered employees and dependents can gain greater access to primary care doctors in their communities, and receive preventive care visits at no cost. In addition, C&K sponsored company-wide wellness competitions, rewarding employees for their successes.

 “Our employees are the heart and soul of C&K,” said Doug Nidiffer, president and CEO of C&K Market, Inc.

“We feel the company’s ongoing investment in our employees’ health and wellness is paramount to C&K’s longevity and success,” he added. 

Portland Business Journal ranked companies according to size by looking at seven key areas of workplace wellness: culture and leadership commitment; foundational components; strategic planning; communication and marketing; programming and interventions; and reporting and analysis. The complete list of the 2010 Healthiest Employers was featured in the Oct. 15 edition of the Portland Business Journal.
