Deborah Dorman: Over 25,000 years of experience at Sainsbury's long service dinner

Earlier this month I was asked to host a table at Sainsbury’s Long Service Dinner at the Lancaster Hotel, London. The Dinner, held annually and attended by the Operating Board including Chief Executive Justin King, is a long-standing tradition at Sainsbury’s and an opportunity to celebrate those colleagues that have over 25 years’ service with us.

Deborah Dorman: Health and wellbeing of our colleagues

We try to maximise the health and wellbeing of our colleagues by promoting and supporting healthy lifestyles. Wellbeing is not simply about preventing sickness or injury, but about work/life balance. We all want our colleagues to feel we support them on challenges they face both at or away from work.

Deborah Dorman: Engaging colleagues through internal communication

We have always known that our colleagues are more committed to giving great service when they're more involved in our business. They achieve more when they understand how their efforts are contributing to a wider goal and when they are recognised for the contribution they make.

Deborah Dorman: The benefits of a diverse workforce

We firmly believe in the benefits a diverse workforce brings. It helps us to understand and adapt to the changing needs of our customers, and offers new and different perspectives on the challenges we may face. Our aim is to create an environment where everyone is welcome and where everyone can be the best they can be.
