Founded in 1985 by retail executive Ron Travers, Premium remains independently owned and led by Ron’s sons Brian and Kevin as co-CEOs. We still have the heart of a small company despite our continuous growth in the U.S. and Canada.

Often candidates are drawn to Premium because they’re looking for flexibility, variety and growth opportunities. And we strive to ensure our team members enjoy their job, feel valued, and emulate our core beliefs – which shine in everything we do.

 

Our core beliefs

Family

We take pride in being a family-first company. We empower our people to prioritize their support systems at home (whether family or friends), so we’re equipped to deliver more for our clients and our teams at work.

Partnership

We’re more than a vendor, we’re an ally. Our cross-functional teams get in the trenches to drive winning retail strategies and performance for our clients.

Creativity

If the solution doesn’t exist, we build it. Where others deliver “service in a box,” we’re stretching to find new ways to surprise and delight shoppers and our clients.

Integrity

Doing the right thing means everything. Honesty and transparency are key traits as we build trusted relationships with our teammates, clients and retail partners.

Eclipsing Expectations

When your name is Premium, we set expectations high and aim to achieve even higher. Our clients count on us for high-caliber talent.

 

The Culture Team

In 2016, Premium created the Culture Team, designed to give voice to employees, foster engagement and give back to our community. Culture team members represent a range of functions and locations to ensure diverse perspectives and opinions.

 

Environmental sustainability

At our National Logistics & Fulfillment Center, we facilitate recycling or upcycling efforts when clients refresh their in-store displays. We dismantle the displays down to their raw materials to move the various components back up the supply chain or repurpose them for community projects. Find out how we do it here.

Our St. Louis and Bentonville-based team members also volunteer each quarter to help pick up trash on the highway in support of the statewide Adopt a Highway program.

 

Our commitment to the communities we serve

To date, the Premium family has donated more than $22,000, supplied nearly 4,500 items and provided more than 45,000 meals to families in need.

Best Buy Teen Tech Centers

Premium has committed $1.4 million dollars to open 7 Best Buy Teen Tech Centers across the United States (locations in St. Louis and Orlando are already open). At each location, teens from disinvested communities learn critical skills through tech education to develop a foundation for future success. You can learn more about this initiative here.

 

Diversity + inclusion

Premium believes team member diversity challenges us to think outside of the box and grow together. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, Premium prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, creed, ancestry, national origin, political beliefs, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, pregnancy, marital status, age, religion, veteran status, or physical or mental disability. We are proud to have a team that is 57% female and 42% people of color.

During Premium’s 2021 celebration of diversity, our employees and CEOs raised $6,200 for a variety of organizations supporting the LGBTQIA community, cultural reconciliation, and the fight against racial injustice.

 

Employee recognition and development

#PeopleofPremium – an initiative to give our team members a glimpse into the lives of Premium people. Each month, we highlight stories, advice or memories of someone from the Premium family. Take a look at some of the awesome features here.

Premium Proud, our employee recognition program developed by the Culture Team, rewards top-performing field team members.

We are committed to helping our employees #GrowWithPremium. Premium’s training team developed the University of Premium (UP)  for self-guided career and personal development. We’re proud to have promoted 18% of our field team members in 2020.

An organization’s culture consists of the beliefs and behaviors that employees share and use on a daily basis. It also drives the overall performance of the organization. We’re proud Premium’s culture has been recognized with the following awards:

We’re excited to announce that Premium has won a gold award from the coveted Brandon Hall Group in the Best Use of Performance Support category. Premium’s win was announced on August 19, 2021.

The 2021 Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards are given for work in learning and development, talent management, leadership development, talent acquisition, human resources, sales performance, diversity, equity & inclusion, and future of work.

The success of our training programs is rooted in using powerful, customizable learning and development platforms combined with our commitment to finding strategic approaches to content creation and delivery. Real-time reporting on learner activity, engagement and business impact also allows us to quickly identify opportunities to refine our strategy at every turn.

In the last year alone, Premium’s training team has leveraged the LearnUpon LMS to deliver 272 training and development courses and build out our career development program University of Premium. On average we see a 90% course completion rate, a 3.5% average knowledge uplift and a 7-9% average lift in job completion / compliance; and we’re continuing to focus on growing those numbers.

Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke explains, “We added several awards categories this year to specifically address critical needs, including how organizations addressed the new dynamics of work and embedded the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion in their HCM practices. Winning organizations in all categories demonstrated a people-centric approach while driving superior business results under challenging and unprecedented conditions.”
