Among its employee perks, DunnhumbyUSA gives all employees the day off for their birthday and five weeks of paid vacation after two full years of service; employees gain an additional day off for every year worked. Employees are also rewarded and celebrated after five, 10 and 15 years of service.
“Cultivating a talented, proud and passionate workforce in a time of extreme growth is a common business challenge, and we are thrilled to be recognized by Great Places to Work® for the second year,” said Stuart Aitken, chief executive officer, DunnhumbyUSA., in a statement.
DunnhumbyUSA was established in Cincinnati in 2003 to help Kroger develop targeted marketing campaigns — something it had done successfully with Tesco in the U.K.
