Team Lidl

Our objective is to become Ireland’s top employer and a great place to work, encourage health and wellbeing, provide equal opportunities to all and develop our employees to reach their full potential.

Overview Overview

It is important to us that all our team members are proud of what we achieve together in Lidl.

Our #WeAreLidl people strategy brings to life our philosophy that our colleagues are part of one team. This strategy focuses on developing sustainable relationships by engaging leaders, prioritising employee wellbeing and implementing consistent and transparent two-way communication, while positively contributing to business objectives. This has, and continues to, engage colleagues and embeds a culture driven by our values – Respect, Recognition, Responsibility and Trust.

Lidl Ireland and Northern Ireland joined global brands such as Puma, Heineken and PepsiCo in being awarded a Top Employer for 2021 by the world-renowned Top Employers Institute. It is important to us that all our team members are proud of what we achieve together in Lidl. This achievement underlines our commitment to delivering best-in-class HR practises in People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Well-being, Diversity & Inclusion and more.

Work Safe. Live Well. Work Safe. Live Well.

When it comes to employee wellbeing we ensure exacting high standards. Work Safe. Live Well. is the ethos of our health and wellbeing strategy. Designed to take an holistic view of employee health and wellness, the strategy focuses on 3 core areas; physical safety at work, physical and mental health, and financial wellbeing.

The programme focuses on safety in the workplace, mindfulness, fitness, nutrition and provides an impressive employee benefits package. Additional programme benefits include pension, healthcare scheme, employee assistance programme, anniversary payments, tax savers, sabbatical leave, maternity and paternity top up and the recently introduced paid volunteer day.

Living Wage Living Wage

In 2015 Lidl was the first nationwide retailer to introduce the Living Wage for all entry level store and warehouse employees and in 2018 was delighted to commit to the new, increased living wage as a minimum to each of our team members. The living wage is an independently assessed and measured rate of income considered necessary to meet basic needs such as housing, food, clothing, transport and healthcare – the cost of which is not always covered by the national minimum wage.

In January, we committed to a €2 million investment in an Employee Bonus for all employees on the island of Ireland. The bonus was the third bonus offered to our colleagues to recognise the continued efforts of our team throughout the Covid pandemic.

“Our people are the secret to our success. For that success to continue, we each need to be the best that we can be. It is our objective to become Ireland’s top employer, be a great place to work where health and wellbeing is actively encouraged, where our colleagues’ safety is paramount and where opportunities are open to all.”
Maeve McCleane, Director of Human Resources
