Why Freedom at Work™

The John Lewis Partnership aims to deliver a culture of advocacy, trust, empowerment and engagement, where leaders encourage, listen to and act upon Partner opinion to create a better business. Democratic vitality is at the heart of the Partnership. Although not a strategic objective in itself, it anchors our future aspirations, so it is important that we place focus and energy behind it.
