A better way of doing business

Watch our short film from our Partners who explain why we believe the John Lewis Partnership is a better way of doing business which started as an experiment over 100 years ago. We also explain our Partnership values and commitment to our customers.

HOW POWER IS SHARED IN THE JOHN LEWIS PARTNERSHIP

The John Lewis Partnership is a business like no other. In this short video, created for our Partners – the 81,500 employees of the Partnership, we explain why their voice is so important and how power is shared between three governing authorities.

HOW OUR TEXTILE FACTORY IS SUPPORTING THE NHS

Watch our short film from Partners at our Herbert Parkinson textile factory who share their pride in producing gowns for the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic. After the factory was shut, a team of 14 Partners returned to manufacture more than 2,000 gowns each week.

IT'S NOT OK

This summer, following commitments set out by the Partnership’s Executive Team, we created safe spaces for Black Partners to share their experiences and bring to life what discrimination feels like. This film was made by our newly formed Black Partner Advisory Group, set up as a consultative body and sounding board to test ideas and contribute to improving the experiences of Black Partners. ‘It’s not OK’ has provided a platform for Black Partners to speak up and educate. Creating space for questions and making room for conversations that now feel less uncomfortable. We continue to listen to all our Partners across the business to put inclusion at the heart of our Partner experience.

John Lewis and Partners Foundation, supporting charities worldwide

A brief look at just 4 of the incredible charities supported by the John Lewis and Partners Foundation in 2019.

JOHN LEWIS PARTNERSHIP RAPID COVID-19 TESTING

We became one of the first UK businesses to successfully pilot lateral flow Covid-19 testing thanks to a partnership with NHS Test and Trace. Rapid Covid-19 testing was introduced initially to our national John Lewis distribution centre at Magna Park, Milton Keynes, in November, but due to the pilot’s success, was rolled out to 38 John Lewis and Waitrose locations in England. 

JOHN LEWIS PARTNERSHIP MUSIC SOCIETY

Our Partners are given the unique experience to join for free, as many of our sports clubs and societies as they wish, covering everything from abseiling and skiing, to drama and photography. Our Music Society is another example and truly brings our Partnership Values to life. With 15 choirs, a jazz band, an award-winning orchestra and the UK's only in-company Musical Director, Manvinder Rattan, the Music Society works hard to contribute to the happiness of Partners in our business, while also giving back to the local communities we operate in through its music outreach programme. Watch this short film to learn more.
