Forbes Ranks Lands’ End No. 21 on This Year’s Midsize Companies List

DODGEVILLE, Wis. (May 17, 2018) ‐ Lands' End, Inc. (NASDAQ: LE) has been named to Forbes’ list of “America's Best Midsize Employers” for the second consecutive year. The company is ranked No. 21. on this year’s midsize companies list.

“America’s Best Midsize Employers” are chosen based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 30,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. The list seeks to discover which companies operating in the U.S. are best at making their employees feel happy, inspired, and well-compensated.

“We’re honored to make the Top 50 list again this year,” said Jerome Griffith, chief executive officer and president, Lands’ End. “Lands’ End was built on the notion of treating people right. The company’s founder, Gary Comer, often said, ‘Take care of the customer,take care of the employee, and the rest will take care of itself.’ We continue today to be inspired by his strong employee and customer-centric culture that has been nurtured for 55 years. Our employees are our most valuable asset and they go above and beyond to make Lands’ End a great place to work and a great place for our customers to shop.”

Lands’ End’s heritage is deeply rooted in helping their employees and their families lead healthier, happier lives.
