First supermarket to adopt the living wage
In 2015, we became the first supermarket to adopt the living wage rate recommended by the Living Wage Foundation. This led to a 20% increase in job applications at Lidl.
We followed this up by becoming the first British supermarket to announce that we would adopt a higher living wage in 2016 and 2017, benefiting 5,500 employees who represent one quarter of our workforce.
As an international chain and equal opportunities employer, we value the skills and ideas of employees from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
Our policy is to provide a working environment in which all our employees can realise their potential free from harassment and discrimination.
We seek to ensure that no one receives less favourable treatment because of gender, gender reassignment, pregnancy, marital/civil status, sexual orientation, race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, age, religious beliefs or disability.
All employees, prospective employees, suppliers and visitors are to be treated with respect, too.
