About John Lewis
John Lewis has become a pillar of British retail, a long way on from its humble beginnings when it was founded back in 1864 as a drapery shop. The central idea was and remains that if you give your employees a share of the profits, the company will succeed. Today the John Lewis Partnership is the UK’s largest employee-owned business, jointly owned by over 78,000 employees, or as they call them, partners.
As well as being a pioneer of joint ownership within an organisation, John Lewis is one of the UK’s countries most prominent, and diverse, retailers. Most recently they began offering broadband in partnership with Plusnet. They pride themself on being a simple, no frills broadband and fibre supplier with top-notch customer service.
