WHO WE ARE

We’re the John Lewis Partnership, a continuing experiment to create a better way of doing business. We’re driven by the extraordinary vision and values of our founder, John Spedan Lewis, who created our model of employee-ownership almost 100 years ago. He believed businesses would be more successful if employees were at the centre of everything they did. His vision means that today we’re more than employees, we’re owners of our business. That’s why we’re called Partners.

The John Lewis Partnership is the UK’s largest employee owned business and parent company of our two cherished retail brands – John Lewis & Partners and Waitrose & Partners. Everything we do is powered by our unique purpose, which puts the happiness of our Partners at its core. Our Partnership Values define how we work. Every one of us is committed to offering our customers quality products, great quality food and outstanding service, because for us, it’s personal.

WHY WE SUPPORT NEW DESIGNERS

John Lewis & Partners is passionate about the role design plays in responding to the changes in how we are living in our homes and the inspiration creativity can bring to our lives. The Home Design Studio at John Lewis & Partners is delighted to be sponsoring New Designers again this year & to have this opportunity to connect with designers at the very start of their career.
