2020 is more than just a number. It is a symbol of what we want to achieve. We're looking to the future with optimism. We're broadening our product ranges, developing our people, engaging with our customers in exciting new ways. We're recruiting graduates of exceptional talent. People with the passion, tenacity and determination to embrace our 2020 Vision.
Embracing our 2020 Vision
As a graduate in 2012, what exactly does the 2020 Vision mean for you? It means being part of an organisation where there are great ideas and great expectations. We're not afraid to be ambitious.
Our 2020 Vision is built on five key pillars. We'll always provide great food at fair prices - but we aim to become recognised as a retailer that engenders trust beyond our traditional product ranges. So we'll continue to develop complementary channels and services, such as Sainsbury's Online, Pharmacies, Banking and Energy.
We'll build on our compelling Clothing and General Merchandising offers. We'll also explore new areas of business - digital technology and international opportunities are already on our radar. Finally, we'll make the most of our space assets: opening new stores, enhancing our retail environments and maximising the value of the property we own.
Loving What We Do
Sainsbury's has always led the retail field. But the more we extend our brand into new areas, the stronger the bonds with our customers need to be. By loving what we do, we'll inspire our colleagues and create a Sainsbury's experience that keeps our customers coming back. Leadership, Loyalty, loving what we do - it's a vision that calls for charismatic people.
We're the world's largest retailer of Fairtrade goods. Just one example of achieving what we believe in.
Values that mean something
As a business, we keep our values recognisable and relevant. We trust each other. We make working together simple. We deliver great service and make great things happen. We treat every pound as our own and, as we head towards 2020 together, we're cheering each other on every step of the way.
Our values genuinely affect how we work, treat others and do business. We're the world's largest retailer of Fairtrade goods, the number one supermarket for animal welfare and the global industry leader in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. We support Comic Relief and sponsored the London 2012 Paralympic Games. We're committed to being a leader in environmental innovation, by reducing waste, reducing packaging and reducing emissions. Not necessarily things we shout about. But all excellent and tangible examples of why people are proud to say they work for Sainsbury's.
Sainsbury's promotes diversity in the workforce and supports Age Positive, Investors in People (Gold Accreditation) the Positive About Disabled People initiatives, Employers Forum on Disability, Stonewall and Carers UK.
2020 may seem a long way into the future. But we make great plans because we're natural forward-thinkers. Our 2020 Vision relies on a strong group of highly talented graduates who can grow with us. You need to come here equipped with the right mindset, right from the start. It's more than simply the drive to move up. It's the self-awareness, intellect and judgement to seek out opportunities, influence others and actively shape your own future. By doing that, you'll help us shape the future of our business.
