Seminar on John Lewis

John Lewis Partnership‘s seminar on 28.05.2014: “Involved and happy employees as the cause of business success and source of competitive advantage at the example of John Lewis Partnership“. In nearly a century, the UK’s leading retail company John Lewis Partnership, has created a unique organisational and management culture, which one can’t find in Estonia and which is as rare elsewhere in the world. It is an excellent example of a company, which has successfully combined doing business with holding to ideals. Clients, too, have noticed it: the company’s both retail chains, John Lewis and Waitrose, have repeatedly been voted to be the best retail businesses in the UK. Read more on the company from here

Jane Burgess, a board member of John Lewis Partnership, is holding a seminar in Tallinn and speaking about the company’s unique democratic organisational culture, management principles, involving partners and history. She has been with the company since 1975 and as a board member since 2002. Her main responsibility is to challenge and encourage every Partner to play their role as co-owners, so that the Partnership benefits from the concepts of management accountability and Partner participation.
