By Anita Jaynes on March 03, 2015

The John Lewis Partnership have announced full year results and that Partners (staff) will receive a bonus of 11%.

Swindon Branch Manager Kate Connock said: “Today we announced the bonus ……

“In Swindon, we make an event of this time of year, celebrating the fact that we are a co-owned business. This is the moment when the team see for the first time what will be the tangible benefit of working for a business that shares its profits with its employees and a thank you for all the hard work and commitment that they show.everyday. 

“It is always a delight to be part of the build up and the excitement of the morning and then the overwhelming cheer of delight on the opening of the envelope.”

Every year Partner’s spend their Bonus on a range of different activities from treating themselves to a holiday or new car or even doing some home improvements. One of our Partners is doing something a little different this year….

Hilary Ainge has been with John Lewis ‘At Home’ Swindon since the shop opened in October 2010. This year Hilary’s bonus will be going towards a very special event. Her eldest son is getting married on the 14th May in Las Vegas. Whilst out there, Hilary is also hoping to take a helicopter ride through the Grand Canyon.

Hilary says: “I’m so excited to go to Las Vegas for my son’s wedding and cannot wait to see the Grand Canyon! It’s brilliant to have a bonus to be able to fund something as special as this.”
