Video: ‘Formula Quite Simple’ to Develop Future Leaders Today


From CEOs to store managers, “they all say the exact same thing,” says Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert about the future of the food industry, “what we need to do is to reinvigorate, re-empower and reeducate our future generations to want to be in our supermarket world.” He discussed food industry leadership with SN Editor-in-Chief David Orgel as part of SN’s coverage of FMI’s Future Connect conference in Orlando, Fla. Lempert says retailers like Publix, Whole Foods, Kroger, Wegmans and Trader Joe’s “really think about their associates in a sustainable way. It’s not just about an hourly wage.” Orgel adds: “The formula is quite simple: Learning best practices, putting in good talent, convincing them to stick with us and grow, and making them believe they will be advanced.”
