Safeway's Russ Jackson Named To Human Resource Executive Magazine's Prestigious HR Honor Roll

PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Safeway Inc. (NYSE: SWY) today announced that Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Russ Jackson, has been named by Human Resource Executive magazine to the influential 2012 HR Honor Roll.  Mr. Jackson will be recognized by the publication on October 9, 2012 at a black tie awards dinner at the University Club of Chicago.

Human Resource Executive selected Mr. Jackson and four other exceptional human resources professionals to recognize and feature in the October issue. Each was chosen for their mastery of the profession, problem-solving skills, positive impact on their organization and contributions to the profession at large.

"Russ is a transformational architect within Safeway," said Safeway Executive Vice President, Larree Renda. "With his vision, insight and drive for results, he has built a human resources organization that is a powerful accelerator of change."

Among his considerable accomplishments at Safeway, Mr. Jackson has been instrumental in strengthening the company's leadership development efforts. For example, in 2011 the company launched a program which provides high-potential and high-performing directors and district managers with vice president-level experiences and instruction. As other key accomplishments, Human Resource Executive noted that Mr. Jackson "implemented a series of new programs aimed at recruiting ex-military personnel for key roles; reshaped the organization's competency model; and enhanced the organization's already highly regarded health initiatives."

Elevating the company's efforts to support veterans, Mr. Jackson and his team launched an initiative aimed at recruiting and developing former junior military officers for retail store management positions. Since the program launched in 2010, Safeway has raised the bar on military hiring each year. The company surpassed its goal of hiring more than 1,000 ex-military personnel by the end of 2012.
