The John Lewis Partnership is a multi-award winning retail business and incorporates two of the high street’s most renowned brands – John Lewis and Waitrose. Combining the best of traditional and modern, it has responded to customers’ needs to become a truly omni-channel business.
This commitment to innovation and outstanding customer service is part of what makes the John Lewis Partnership so different and successful. But perhaps the most unique aspect is that everyone that joins the organisation becomes a Partner. This means they own a share in the business and get to have a say in how it’s run.
When our founder, John Spedan Lewis, set up the Partnership, he was careful to create a governance system, set out in our Constitution, that would be both commercial allowing us to move quickly to stay ahead in a competitive industry, and democratic giving every Partner a voice in the business they co-own. His combination of commercial acumen and corporate conscience, so ahead of its time, is what makes us what we are today.
