The John Lewis Partnership is proud of its commercial reputation, its sales and its growth. Our Partners are inevitably the true drivers of this success. Yet no one operates in isolation. Our very best ideas may be ground-breaking, but sometimes they’re just not right for right now. And in the competitive world we operate in, we have to be focused, detailed and above all, commercial.
This is why we have a team of experts who cross all the ‘t’s’ and dot all the ‘i’s’ for us so that when we’re being bold, we can – as far as possible – know we’re not being rash.
Insurance protects us against unplanned events. Our legal teams see to it that we’re compliant across all parts of the business from consumers and contracts, to intellectual property, employment and with regards to our real estate. Internal Audit and Risk Management provides assurance to the Board and Audit committee on the effectiveness of the systems of internal control and risk management.
To minimise risk, we also have our Business Development and Intelligence teams who provide us with vital information and research to help us make informed decisions. This is also why we have Business Information which is a shared, company-wide resource that allows our Partners to access externally published data and information on the markets and commercial context.
