John Lewis rated as best retailer to work for

The John Lewis department store chain is the best retailer to work for in the UK, according to data released by job site Indeed.

The retailer came top in the rankings of the UK’s best retail employers following the compilation of data from thousands of UK employee reviews. John Lewis famously invites staff to become partners and offers them a share of its profits.

Libby Jones, John Lewis director of personnel, said: "Attracting top talent to join us is integral to our success. It’s wonderful to know that potential new partners are taking the time to find out more about the opportunities at John Lewis on Indeed.com and also that our current partners have ranked John Lewis so highly on the site."

Lush Cosmetics came in second place after being praised for its ethical stance, flexible work hours and 50% staff discount.

UK based companies dominated the list and accounted for 11 of the 15 most popular retail employers. Good rates of pay were a common theme among the most favoured companies.

Meanwhile, staff at seventh-placed Harrods praised the luxury store for its workplace environment and company culture.

Kevin Walker, senior director of employer insights at Indeed, said: “The jobs market is tight and there’s stiff competition for the best talent - that’s why good brands all offer their employees a range of benefits and flexible working. Our research shows great brands are the ones whose staff feel valued, well managed - and part of a positive company culture.”

According to the research, the top 15 retailers were: 

1. John Lewis
2. Lush Cosmetics
3. IKEA
4. Marks & Spencer
5. Clarks
6. Pandora Jewellery
7. Harrods
8. GAME
9. Waitrose
10. The Body Shop
11. TK Maxx
12. GAP
13. Argos
14. Post Office
15. Sainsbury's
