What does working in a Partnership mean?
Being a Partnership is about much more than sharing the profits: it defines our approach to what we do. With ownership comes responsibility, and the knowledge that our success depends entirely on providing the best quality products and services to our customers so that they come back to us again and again. Our democratic network of elected councils, committees and forums gives Partners a real say in our decision-making processes, and allows us to challenge management on performance and have a real say in how the business is run. This sense of collective responsibility extends to everyone we deal with, from customers and suppliers to the communities we're part of.
The John Lewis Partnership is a member of the Employee Ownership Association (EOA), a business association for companies who are substantially or wholly owned by the people who work for them. For more information visit the Employee Ownership Association website (www.employeeownership.co.uk).
