Schnuck Markets: Centralizing Internal Communication and Engaging All Employees
About Schnuck Markets
Schnuck Markets, Inc. (Schnucks) is one of the largest privately held supermarket chains in the United States, with 113 store locations across 5 states in the Midwest, employing more than over 14,000 employees that they call ‘‘teammates.’’
Before using LumApps, Schnucks relied primarily on email to inform and communicate with all their teammates. They did not have a central source of truth for information and knowledge-sharing. Content and communications on branding, expansion, and even detailed sales and incentive initiatives could get lost between email, calendar, documents, and other apps in their productivity suite. Teammates on the frontlines, in stores or on the go for delivery, did not receive emails like teammates in the office or HQ.
They wanted a way to connect all teammates regardless of where they were located, to ensure they receive the latest important information and are equipped with the resources they need.
Schnucks turned to LumApps and Agosto, a trusted LumApps partner, to help drive the transformation. Schnucks turned to LumApps intranet solution for its native integration with G Suite, customizable design and the ability for department heads and store managers to autonomously distribute information to their teammates.
Schnucks Connection is our single source of truth – so our lines of communication are clean and our teammates are confident they are getting the resources and tools they need for their safety and well-being.
