Sainsbury’s company vision
Our vision is to be the most trusted retailer, where people love to work and shop. That means harnessing the talent, creativity and diversity of our colleagues to ensure that customers receive great service every time they shop with us.
If you would like to hear more about our vision and values, be sure to visit our corporate page.
We invest in training, development and multiple initiatives to ensure our teams feel enabled to offer the best shopping experience to our customers and that Sainsbury’s is truly a ‘Great Place to Work’.
So, where does being a ‘Great Place to Work’ begin?
How about offering an environment where everyone can thrive? Somewhere over 185,000 colleagues can become the best versions of themselves? We think that’s a pretty good place to start. And it’s all part of our journey to becoming the most inclusive retailer.
But we also need to understand what a great place to work means for our colleagues. That’s why listening and creating conversations across our business is so important. And we do this through our listening groups and employee engagement survey. Plus our CEO Mike Coupe holds regular one-hour Q&A sessions on Yammer (our internal social media platform).
And listening – really listening – has shaped the strategy that’s being led by our Diversity Steering Group, and Diversity Champions.
Community comes first
Of course we want our business to reflect the communities we serve. And we’re happy to say our workforce is representative of the UK population. We’re also doing all we can to help our underrepresented colleagues achieve and progress. As well as being members of Business In The Community for Race, we’re a founding member of Empower. Both offer a range of fantastic mentoring and leadership programmes for our BAME colleagues.
