BUSINESS BRIEF: Wilmington’s UniFirst Earns Spot On Selling Power’s “50 Best Companies To Sell For” List For 18th Consecutive Year

Below is a press release from Wilmington-based UniFirst:

WILMINGTON, MA — UniFirst Corporation (NYSE:UNF), a North American leader in the supply and servicing of uniforms, workwear, and facility service products for businesses, has earned a spot on Selling Power Magazine’s annual list of the “50 Best Companies to Sell For” for the 18th consecutive year.

The annual list is made up of companies of all sizes in a range of industries—with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to businesses with sales-force numbers in the thousands. Companies are judged across categories such as sales compensation and benefits, sales culture, onboarding and sales enablement strategies, and sales training and coaching. In addition to earning high honors in the aforementioned criteria, almost all the companies featured on the 2021 list also stood out for their ability to invest in and offer thorough virtual training and alternative methods for continued sales success throughout the pandemic.

According to Selling Power’s website, “As the [Selling Power research team] continually works to adjust our selection and ranking process to accommodate for ever-changing market conditions, technology, trends in selling, and other external factors, each year’s ranking uniquely stands on its own and is not directly comparable to prior years.” This factor, coupled with UniFirst’s run of 18 consecutive listings, is a testament to the company’s ability to adapt and evolve its selling program with the times.

“The companies who earned a spot on this year’s list have truly world-class sales organizations,” said Selling Power Magazine Founder and Publisher, Gerhard Gschwandtner. “In addition to providing superior onboarding and ongoing sales training, they quickly pivoted their strategy to give their sales reps the tools and skills they needed to succeed in today’s digital, remote selling environment.”

“UniFirst is honored to once again earn a place on Selling Power’s annual “50 Best Companies to Sell For” list,” said UniFirst Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, David Katz. “Even with the many unprecedented challenges brought on by the pandemic, our sales organization continued to persevere in pursuit of providing the best-possible customer experience. While this accolade is a yearly reminder of their accomplishments, I continue to be impressed by our team’s daily achievements.”
