When Hy-Vee suspended a popular employee perk back in February, they promised it would return this spring. The company's promise is now a reality.

Hy-Vee has re-introduced an employee discount program, that's already taken effect. In a Hy-Vee statement, the company said, "We made a commitment to our employees to provide them a stronger and secure benefit, and we followed through on that commitment. This is just of the many benefits we offer our employees..."

According to KCCI, Hy-Vee is again offering employees a discount of 10 percent on groceries and food service. That employee perk was temporarily suspended in February after Hy-Vee revealed they'd discovered fraud inside the program. The discount had been in place since December of 2020.

The West Des Moines, Iowa-based grocery store chain says the return of the 10 percent employee discount is just one of a variety of benefits the company provides to workers. Those include:

  • 401(k) with company match
  • Childcare support
  • Holiday pay for retail workers
  • Hy-Vee University career development
  • Mental health support
  • Part-time insurance; employer contribution if eligible
  • Tuition help
  • Weekly pay

Hy-Vee traces its roots to Beaconsfield, Iowa in 1930. By 1933, Charles Hyde and David Vredenburg began calling their store Hyde & Vredenburg. In the 1930s, the company began to expand and had gross sales of more than $1 million by 1938.

The name of the grocery store chain was changed to Hy-Vee in 1952 and now has more than 93,000 employees, and over 285 locations in eight Midwestern states.
