John Lewis to share nearly £200m in bonuses after successful year
John Lewis Partnership staff received a bonus worth more than nine weeks' pay after one of the most successful years in the partnership's history.
The 75,000 staff who co-own the department store group and sister chain Waitrose, will each pocket a bonus equal to 18% of their annual pay. All permanent staff, from chairman Charlie Mayfield down to shop assistants and shelf-stackers, get the same percentage payout from this year's bonus pot of £194.5m.
The partnership reported a 20% leap in pre-tax profits to £367.9m. It also said it would create around 4,300 jobs this year through a £600m expansion plan.Read More john lewis bonus..
