"There is no doubt in my mind that our people are the secret to our success. And for that success to continue, we each need to be the best that we can be. Life in Lidl is fast-paced – be it in the warehouse, in the store or in the office – it’s all go! Lidl is committed to looking after our colleagues not only at work, but also in their personal life.
That’s why we take health and wellbeing very seriously at Lidl. Our colleagues' wellbeing includes their physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing and financial wellbeing. We are committed to having policies and practises in place that reward them and look after the many aspects of their wellbeing. Lidl continues to move forward as an effective, HR-focused, organisation – one that leads the market in terms of HR policy development. In the past we’ve invested in many wellbeing initiatives, including the energising Step Challenge, life-saving Cardiac Screening, supportive and confidential Employee Assistance Programme, to name but a few.
We pay above the market rate, and introduced the ‘living wage’ to all colleagues across the business. And, we go further, ensuring that their financial wellbeing is more than just that.
We provide benefits to reward the hard work and commitment of our team and to look after their wellbeing.
I am incredibly proud of who we are and all that we have achieved as a team so far. As we continue to develop and grow our business, our team can look forward to our efforts being continuously recognised."
- Maeve McCleane, Director of HR
